Triads Module

Note – the Reviews and the Exam in this course is included in the lesson preceding it.  If you’ve paid for Lecture 9,  the review and exam following it are included at no extra charge.

Many lecture video times can range for about 15-25 mins per section.  Due to the focus of the material, there are very few places where topics are  just “brushed upon” or given a brief overview.  Each topic is tackled in depth.  In addition, there are “Drills” and Homework assignments for each lecture.

Note also that this Module does not require Lead Guitar Phase One, but does require the Notes on the Neck Module.  However we reccomend Lead Phase One, as a provision for those who want to exercise total command over their lead playing and options in any key on any string, and able to confidently play in 4 dimensions at any place on the guitar, creating an endless chain of approach and departure points, limited only by the dimensions of the neck itself.
