Cdim is indeed C-Eb-Gb. If you add the note A you end up with Cdim7.
How did you come up with the pattern Eb-A-C-Gb ?

ps: as a coincidence, this chord is also an Ebdim7, Gbdim7 and Adim7  :)

Chix - if i remember correctly the lesson revolves around C, G & D - but if you keep the shape you can play it anywhere and it becomes the same chord as the root note for each position - eg if you played the first shape Justin shows with the root on fret one you have an F chord, move the shape to the second fret it becomes F#, move it to the 3rd fret it becomes G and so on.

I think what Justin is doing is imploring you to become familiar with each root note for each shape - not just G, C & D.

I watched the triads lesson last night, and understand it for the most part, at least for the 3 shapes.  But taking F maj for example, on the fretboard I find these triads.  They don't all correspond to the 3 shapes, but look like inversions of F maj.  Are we limited to the 3 shapes, or have I missed something?

E|--1-----5-----10--|
B|--1-----6-----10--|
G|--2--2--5-----10--|
D|-----3-----7------|
A|-----3-----8------|
E|-----------8------|

Hi Minotaur,

The lesson on triads only covers the shapes that inhabit the first 3 strings - there are other shapes that exist on other combinations of strings and Justin invites you to go off and explore those for yourself.

Basically anywhere you find a F on the fretboard you will be able to find a triad shape to form an F chord NB the root won't always be the lowest note however.

The sexy part is that whenever you find a triad shape it will be replicable up and down the fretboard.

Can you please clarify the correct minor triad shapes Justin?
I really want to know if I'm right  ??? I hate learning things incorrectly and then having to get rid of a bad habit :(

Plan B - sorry find your chart too confusing! kinda looks right, but I don't like trying to read them like that.

This is the best lesson I have had in a long time. I was always amazed how people could play chords other than barre chords up and down the neck. I'm basically a barre chord and cowboy chord kind of guy. Not anymore! Thanks Justin!

@ Plan.B

PlanB - It is right, although your chart could be clearer.
For example - stringset 654 should look like: 542xxx not xxx542.  
Also labeling the chords would be clearer: 542xxx is A major.

Thanks for your work and for the post.
