The triad is the basic building block for many different types of chords. The 4 types of triads are major, minor, diminished and augmented.
Upper structure triads are complex sounding altered dominant chords. They will add texture and sophistication to your playing.
In this lesson, Jovino answers some questions on triads and explores some ideas on how to create complex sonorities from a simple base.
We first learn the note names, then intervals, and then we learn the triad which is the most basic building block of harmony.
Upper structure triads are complex altered dominant chord voicings that are widely used in solo jazz piano performance.
In this 5 minute masterclass we will explore how we can use triads as a way to create improvised melodies and whole improvised solos.
In this 5 minute masterclass we will look at how a pair of triads can define any mode and become a strong sound for improvising and comping.
The minor 251 progression in the final measures of the bridge is a nice place to add some altered voicings and upper structure triads.
This course explores the altered chord tones: b9s, #9s, #11s, and #5s / b13s. We then create upper structure triads and apply to 4 famous jazz standards.
In this lesson we expand on the material covered in the previous video and look at the minor 251 and associated triad options.
