TRIADS: Inside Out by Ry Naylor Guitar

TRIADS: Inside Out

Break out of common chord boxes and revolutionise your playing with new, innovative approaches to chord progressions using triad shapes.
€89 (89 Euros) converts to around $99 (USD)

Triads are chords

You might not have realised, but triads were probably one of the first things you ever learnt on guitar.

E major - it’s a triad.

A minor - yep, triad.

D7 - you guessed it…triad.

C major - not one, but three triads glued together!


They’re the bare bones of harmony, the three elements combined to make what we call 'chords'.

They are seen and used in countless songs across vastly different genres: rock, pop, funk, folk, reggae, ska (even metal!), which makes them essential learning.

There are literally hundreds of ways to play any chord if you understand how chords are built and how you move them around the neck.

Not only will the study of triads revolutionise your rhythm playing, it will also ensure you hit the right notes every time in your lead solos.

What students say...

"Both Ry's courses provide you with an understandable and pleasent overview of the foundations of music theory applied to the Guitar's fretboard. 

In my opinion Ry completely succeeds on one of the hardest tasks of teaching: 
making complexity something simple and enjoyable. "
Manuel Canavarro, Spain


In this detailed video course, designed to motivate and inspire your weekly practice, I will break down triad shapes and teach you how to memorise and apply them in your own playing.

We'll go through a systematic way of dividing the strings up to teach you EVERY SINGLE possible closed voicing triad from any note on the fretboard.

We will then use these shapes as a basis to explore open (or spread) triad voicings to create beautiful sounds from even the simplest of chord progressions.

We will cover

  • The theory of the triad
  • Major, minor, diminished and augmented triad shapes
  • What inversions are and how we play them
  • ALL possible closed voice triads
  • Playing chord progressions and creating second guitar parts anywhere on the neck
  • Applying octave shapes to closed voicing triads to ‘spread’ the notes out for open voice triads
  • Sus chord grips
  • Using triads as substitutions for seventh chords
  • Combining triads with different bass notes for creating more colourful chords
  • Other great sounds derived from triad shapes - namely thirds, sixths and tenths
  • Triad application for lead playing - arpeggios and chord tone soloing

To help you in your learning

  • Detailed breakdowns of the concepts with explanatory notes and PDF tabs. 
  • Exercises at every stage to add to your practice schedule to master the concepts taught.
  • 8 Triad Studies written specifically for the course to show you how you to be creative and implement your new knowledge.

Who is this course designed for?

The student in mind when I created this course is an intermediate player with a solid grounding in the fundamentals of music theory.

You will have learnt all of your open chords and common barre chord grips (rooted on string 6(E) and string 5(A)), but are longing to not be restricted in your playing.

You want be able to navigate the fretboard and play through any progression in any style anywhere on the neck.

Before you start

Ideally student will have read my ‘Fretboard Mastery’ eBook and completed my introductory theory course ‘Guitar Rut Busters: Essential Theory’.

Theoretical concept will be reviewed in this course but, at the very least, the student is expected to know the following:

  • Naming of notes (musical alphabet/sharps/flats)
  • Fretboard Octave Shapes
  • Major Scale Formula
  • Key Signatures / Circle of Fifths
  • Chords in a Major Key
  • Natural Minor Scale Formula
  • Chords in a Minor Key
