Combine this with a CAGED lesson and master the fretboard. @neomass This helps in learning the different locations on the neck to make the same chord. Example: use the 3 Major triads in the top left corner. The root is G, 3rd fret on the e string. the idea is to find two more G triad using the same strings. The next G triad would have the root on the 8th fret B string. The third triads root is on the 12th fret, G string. All the same chord, same strings but 3 different positions. By learning all the triads using 3 different strings (eBG BGD GDA DAE) you will learn 12 ways to make the G triads. I just hope I did not add confusion.
