Question - What is this System- Triad pairs?
Answer - An immensely powerful innovative improvisational tool!
Simply put, it is superimposing pairs of triads ( major or minor) over a given chord.
When we play triad pairs on top of a base chord we can EVOKE exotic sounds and colours.
Just as a master chef adds special ingredients to a dish to produce a
mouth watering flavours we can learn to colour our improvisations in a masterful way superimposing triads, taking our playing rapidly to a higher level.
This PDF features very carefully written Triad pair exercises over the famous groovy chords of Cantaloupe Island by Herbie Hancock that will challenge you technically whilst training your ear to hear these harmonies taking your playing to
a new level.

( 7 pages of these preparatory exercises)

Cantaloup Island not shown in the video

NOTE PLEASE THIS IS ADVANCED LEVEL
As a professionell saxophonist i use this exercises for warm up, changing my lines and for lessons. Straight and musically . You don’t have to read a book first. It takes 5 minutes to buy, (down) load and start playing! It‘s not easy, but you can use a metronome first (or slow down the music).
It’s a great product, informative and innovative.. so many ideas, it will keep me busy for a while! Excellent value.
Very Functional for jazz improvisation
Very helpful indeed
