28+ E Augmented Triad Bass Clef Background. This is also the first line above the bass clef. Notice that each one is a stack of triads will not always be used in the convenient stacks of notes as shown above.
A triad is a group of three notes which are related by thirds.
Select a unique range per clef, from 7 ledger lines above the staff to 4 ledger lines below. Remember that tonic triads are always built on the first note of the scale, so in this tonic triad, the lowest note has to be a g, because the key is g major. Be aware that there need not be a harmonic relationship between the chord above the slash and the note below it. For example, if, in an augmented g sharp major chord, you rewrite the d double sharp as an e natural, the triad becomes an e augmented chord.
