Triads across the fretboard

In this post I want to expand on my previous posts regarding triad shapes. The original posts tended to work through string sets (e.g. stings 1 to 3, or 2 to 4 etc) and moving shapes up the neck. In this post I explore moving triad shapes across the neck instead.

I find this a more chord-like approach and you will probably recognise familiar shapes. For example, the following shows some familiar cowboy chord shapes that appear in the major triads.

Major Triads

Major triads (examples in Gmaj) starting on the first string set (strings 1 to 3) moving across the fretboard to the last string set (strings 4 to 6).

Minor Triads

Minor triads (examples in Gmin) starting on the first string set (strings 1 to 3) moving across the fretboard to the last string set (strings 4 to 6).

Diminished Triads

Diminished triads (examples in Gdim) starting on the first string set (strings 1 to 3) moving across the fretboard to the last string set (strings 4 to 6).

Augmented Triads

Augmented triads (examples in Gaug) starting on the first string set (strings 1 to 3) moving across the fretboard to the last string set (strings 4 to 6).
