Chord triads are a sequence of 3 notes separated by a third. A simple example of triad chord is C major, which contains the notes C, E, and G.
The common way to use triad is to play the main major and minor chords in a song.
However, there are other ways to use triads in a song, which can give a different color to your harmony.
One technique is to change the triad in simple ways that makes it sound a little different. For example, you can move one of the notes in the triad one note down (in a diatonic way), and get a new “altered” triad the sounds well.
For example, if you take the E triad (E, G#, B), you can get the following combinations:
- E, G#, A
- E, F#, B
- D, G# B
You will see that each chord triad change creates a new triad that has sounds great in the context of the song. These triads represent the note extensions of a 11th, 9th, and 7th.
