A review

Hi Nick Until that moment I have been using your useful material as calisthenic exercises (no played guitar since november 21). Also, I have been improvised using the chords I see in the material. It is really exciting hear how it works. So, the same time I am thinking I need spend some time for understanding the relationships between chords and notes for applying when improvising (any chords context) or in my music (I mean, go beyond the proposed exercises). I really want to do it. Your material is really wonderful, It is a great way to go ahead in music learning. Thanks for ask and thanks for that great job...

More than snippets.

The book and study is most wonder! But... I would be happy if the notated/tabbed examples started on beat one, matching the video examples. I have an extensive library of books/videos/internet instruction and private lessons from Berklee College of music to divulge, study and master. Your book is a supplement (a fine one at that) but I don't have the time to listen, watch and learn what you are doing. I would pay for the complete notated/tabbed examples. I have many of your instructional books and lessons. So please consider finishing the videos examples in completion so we all can see how these triad pairs come together through the strict diet of study and improvisation. Thank you. Billy Ray P.S. I will most definitely buy from you again when the right study is presented. Your studies have helped me immensely.

i have the thesaurus of triad pairs and it is great...i love practicing to the drones but this helps the guitar player who is used to tabs...i try not to get dependent on the tabs but it really helps...thanks Nick ....of course i'm only on the 1st and 2nd triad pairs....for Cm...lots of material to grasp.

I found triad pairs for guitar to be a tremendous asset and resource of information for me. If you are looking to add another dimension to your playing this book is a valuable asset. I totally recommend triad pairs to the guitarist who is looking to add more melodic ideas and depth to their playing.



Hi Joseph! Thanks for your review! We are glad that you are enjoying this material as much as we did puting it together. Best , Jazz duets

An Open Door!

I've been a little underwhelmed with my guitar improvisations (classic scalar foundations) lately and I have been drawn to triad pairs as an area to explore. I begin to find myself playing more melodic phrases already now I am excited to have this path to take in the future. As a guitar player I can recommend this introduction, and all of Nick's triad pair tutorials and exercises. I especially enjoy his comments about the emotional sound evoked by various melodic paths.



Hi Bill , Thanks for this review. Triad pairs are beautiful on guitar and definitely help guitarists open up to new ideas and possibilities. It is a powerful concept that helps generate new melodies and shapes. Happy practicing.

YouTube videos of merit

I purchased the pdf as a direct result of the content of the video in order to take forward the method provided in the video. The level of teaching provided in the video and follow up pdf was well worth the cost.
