D Major Ascending Triads

Get ready to tie your fingers in knots! Just kidding. But it may take a little while for you to get a suitable fingering down for this progression. It's in the key of D Major. It's a harmonised scale progression. If you don't know what that is don't worry too much for the sake of this lesson. As for fingering this is given in both traditional score and tablature. Fingering for different instruments is so diverse that we can't really comment here. You may even find that after quite a long time your fingering may change.

As you play through this you'll notice you are ascending in triplets through an entire octave of the D Major scale. This is a great warm up exercise. But, it's a whole lot more than that. See how you go at incorporating runs using this progression into your lead playing.
