Canadian Jazz guitarist Warren Greig delivers his first jazz guitar lesson for Guitar Jar readers by focussing on improving jazz soloing techniques using triads.
Below are a couple of Warrens videos explaining the use of triads to aid improvisation in jazz guitar soloing.
Designed for the guitarist who feel their lines are too scalar. Interposing triadic forms in all inversions introduces intervallic variety and superimposed harmonies (performed on a Martin CF 1 archtop guitar).
This excerpt demonstrates how the augmented triad inversions all share the same shape on the guitar. The augmented triad is used as pivot to connect with major, minor and diminished triads on all string sets.
