Triads are three-note chords that have four different qualities, Major, Minor, Diminished and Augmented.
Each triad can be played both Harmonically (strummed or plucked all at the same time), or Melodically (each note plucked one at a time in order). When practicing these triads it is a good idea to use both techniques in order to fully retain each shape in your fingers and the sound of each voicing in your ears.
