In the last exercise of Lesson 2, you were asked to work out the seven triads based on the scale of G major. We’ll now check your answers by taking a closer look at the triads formed from each scale position and using this knowledge, create a few simple progressions.
While practising these new progressions, we’ll learn a new rhythm based on the dotted crotchet. This is a good alternative to playing chords straight on each beat. This dotted rhythm will allow you to create simple variation in your playing, keeping things fresh.
The dotted rhythm with its larger spacing between chords sounds more relaxed than the straight rhythm. As a result, it’s great for use when playing softer sections of a song, anywhere more space is required. Understanding the different qualities of rhythms will allow you to choose the right one to create a desired effect, and by the end of this lesson, you’ll have two simple, but useful rhythms available.
