riads are very powerful, because they're literally in the air
around us. Almost all vibrating bodies produce harmonics, and
because of the laws of physics, the harmonics we hear most
strongly generate triads - check out the strong harmonics at the
12th, 7th, 5th and 4th frets on your bass. We hear them almost
instinctively. We'll work with major triads today.
Check it out: because of the "strength" of their distinctive
sound, triads help "make sense" of your lines.
