TRIAD QUILT Vol. 2 (Triadic Helixes) Creative Add9 Triad (3125 & 5312) Exercises and Phrases + Video Masterclass + backing track
This study is a continuation to Volume 1 of my Triad Quilt book series. Here we continue the evolution of the melodic approach to practicing and internalizing diatonic add9 triads all over the fretboard with the addition of one more pattern - the 5312 (fifth, third, root and ninth/second). I find these two sets of 4 note structures to be of essential value for the modern improvisatory vocabulary and also very useful as technical practice material.
The study consists of 7 different exercises/phrases which are specifically designed to showcase interesting and creative passages made possible by the combination of these two simple add9 diatonic triad inversions. Each one of these phrases is then explored fully all over the instrument in all string sets and mode (key) positions.
Most of the exercises concentrate on the contrast (between two different tonal centers or diatonic/chromatic passages) that is needed to achieve a colorful, dense and harmonically rich melodic palette which one could apply over a variety of different harmonies and chordal movements.
In the accompanying tutorial video I will be demonstrating (step-by-step) the concepts behind this approach for building melodic vocabulary as well as the particular architecture, construction and possible application of each and every exercise and phrase. Also, I will be presenting different ideas and ways in which I like to practice the material in order to make its internalization on the instrument more efficient and comfortable.
All examples are presented within the positions of the seven modes of the G major scale but I strongly advise to practice in all 12 keys as well as different scale systems; melodic minor, harmonic minor, etc.
