Wtf is this guy on? He says if u want to sound different, play "TRIADS." What am I missing here? I thought those were the first chords u learn. Perhaps he's using the wrong terms for what's he doing, hes not teaching very well i don't think https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-wstHaeXaUM
Yeah he hasn't really explained himself that well. All he's really saying is that you can play the same chords in different positions using different shapes, and that you only need a minimum of 3 notes per chord to still get the "chord" feeling so it really doesn't matter where you put them as long as the notes are right.
