One Triad Riff to Rule Them All

Get full access

This whole time on Guitar Insider, I've been encouraging everybody to learn triads all over the neck - in response to questions about pentatonic scale patterns all over the neck, chord theory and riffs and rhythm parts. Today I hope to add some fuel to that fire by showing one of the most iconic triad movements that's been used in a thousand songs. This riff can be used to great effect whether you know any other triads or not - but I'm also going to demonstrate how a little bit of triad knowledge can enable you to turn this simple little movement into a lifetime of cool vocabulary where only your creativity is the limit!
