Guitar Lick Triads and Phaser Effect

Todays guitar lick goes through some triad shapes and uses a phaser effect to jazz up the clean guitar sound a bit. Pretty basic but I like this style of playing. In the guitar tab the rhythmic notation is not exact so listen to the video clip to get a feel for the phrasing. Once you get the triad shapes under your fingers try different rhythms and mix and match the chords to create other progressions. The Red Hot Chili Peppers later material frequently uses triad shapes and Frusciante is a real master at this style.
