In this CHOP SHOP we attack the major triads in all keys. Start off playing SLOW & CLEAN! As you develop the technique to play this exercise, gradually speed up the tempo, but remember – clean is more important than fast!! Triads are the basis of ALL chords… so the better you know your triads, the easier playing chord changes will be.

1. If needed, break down the triads into individual keys.

2. Once you have mastered the exercise, try doing it with no music.

3. For an added challenge, try doing all of the triads just one octave (it’s harder than full range).

CHOP SHOP is a series of exercises written/developed by Scott Paddock to help students develop super clean technique while at the same time learning new musical concepts.
