A triad is a three note chord. In traditional chord theory there are four triad chord types: major, minor, diminished and augmented. This lesson covers the augmented and diminished triads on strings 2 3 4.

Interesting tidbit of information for the augmented triad. If you lower on of the notes it becomes a major shape. If you rasie the same note/string one fret from the oprigianl augmented triad it is the realtive minor of the major you created.

UL42-TRId Example - 1

This is straight out of the wacky mind of Pat Martino. Pat does neglect one point that you really, really need to know and that is the notes of the fingerboard on your instrument - regardless. Otherwise it's just shapes and we know there are way too many for that.

This is some after the fact information where your better off simply knowing your, at a minimium your major triads and then you can great the realtive minors by raiseing the fifth of the major triad two frets. You get the same result and ship the augmented trick.

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books!Peter Rhee
