Uncle Tim's First Inversion TriadsUncle Tim's Diatonic 7th Triads For Guitar

C major scaleUncle Tim's First Inversion Diatonic 7th Triads are unique. This eBook was developed to use chords that are outside the normal progressions you hear.

Seventh triads have their own unique sound. You can try a few below and see for yourself. Since there is no fifth degree present, these chords rely on the third degree to impart some kind of major / minor sound over the chord while the seventh degree adds a flavor on top of the lower third.

Seventh triads are built on diatonic scales, just like first, second and root inversion basic triads. And like the other eBooks, the first thing this eBook does is separate the Diatonic signature, shown to the right into four - three string sets of notes (shown below). This way we can build the 7th triad cascades for the key of C major and A minor. By building triads for the four - three string sets, we are building triads for the entire fretboard and for the entire key according to the rules we are using for these triads. So you cover the entire fretboard for the key of C major. Look at the next example and you can see how it maps out the fretboard.

In this illustration you can see the triads cascading down the four - three string sets. Cascades because they cascade down the fretboard. You can play these on just one three string set or jump to other sets as shown here. And the chords will always appear in order starting with whatever the first triad the strings can make. So starting with the tonic seventh chord you get a C major seventh, D minor seventh, E minor seventh, F Major 7th, G 7th, A minor 7 and B half Diminished 7 triads. They will always cascade in order.

First Inversion triads - Key of C Major

The Chords are carved out of the scale of C major

As you look over the cascades, you can now begin to see that the scale is responsible for creating these cascades. They only contain the notes of the C major scale and every note in the scale can spawn a chord. In fact at least three triads (one for each inversion).

These triads are the building blocks for more elaborate chords

G Major Chord in C Diatonic ScaleNotice the G major barre chord on the left hand side. This chord is part of all the chords of the key of C major and can be found inside the twelve fret signature as shown here. These seventh triads can be mixed and matched up with the standard chords in the key. This should give you another layer of chords to try in different situations. All of this information can be locked in with the standard key based information presented in the Uncle Tim Series. That should help you to continue to expand your knowledge and exercise it with what you already know.

And every triad can be added to with adjoining notes to create accent chords and spice progressions up with added notes. With these diagrams you can easily see all the different possibilities so you can pick just the right chord or give the progression just the right flavor.

All of Uncle Tim's eBooks are constructed using the Circle of Fifths

The Circle of Fifths

When you use any of Uncle Tim's eBooks you will always progress through each key by way of the Circle of Fifths. This is how music is created using a key based approach and these chords are created by applying the rules of theory to the key of C major using Uncle Tim's unique visual method.

The Circle of Fifths starts out with the key of C major and proceeds by building each scale. We progress through the same sequence when creating cascades based on the scale. This is a very good way to tie this information into other information about each key that you already know. So you can expand your knowledge and begin to tie everything together.

And these triad cascades offer excellent practice for finger gymnastics. They go nicely with scale practice too.
