Do you REALLY know your triads on the guitar?

You may think you do… but wait till you see what Sid Jacobs has in store in this latest master class!

Sit in as Sid Jacobs demonstrates how he uses triad pairs to create strong dramatic intervallic lines. Sid shows how he uses these on an original blues composition, Stella By Starlight (Victor Young) and Peace (Horace Silver). You will see Sid play these lines over these 3 compositions and get many ideas for your own lines.

In addition to learning how to improvise using these sounds, Sid also shares left hand fingering tips, posture, ideas he learned from Lenny Breau, muscle memory and other insights from his years of experience.

This class is great for any guitarist looking to develop a strong personal melodic vocabulary and style.

  1. Triad Pairs


    Wow. Thanks Sid! I’ll need to work with this concept a long while. I think it will be worth it though.

  2. These Intervallic exercises sound like beautiful music to me rather than rote scalar monotony, what Joy !


    Fun and Musical lesson , new sounds and inspiring concepts , once i get these shapes committed to experience seems like you could have fun for hours trying out different permutations on a whim and see what you come up with, the musical possibilities are endless….
