Guitar Lesson: Jazz Guitar Triadic Improvisation

posted by

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.

Introduction:

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).

Triadic Improvisation for Jazz Guitar continued:

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.

  • Thanks for your video lesson Warren. This is a really good lesson and I’m encouraged as it’s the kind of lesson I feel I can make some progress in developing my Jazz guitar techniques.

    And welcome to Guitar Jar!
