Today we’ll be dealing with a concept that has been fascinating me ever since I came across it: wide interval triads á la Eric Johnson, Steve Morse, etc.
Firstly, let’s look at how these triads are constructed. Here are three simple steps:
1. Fret a triad of your choice, any chord type, any inversion.
2. Raise the middle note by an octave.
3. Find a useful fingering for those notes. (optional)
Feel free to experiment on your own with a few examples of your choice before moving on to the next part.
