  Triads, Part 2
In this triad, the bottom note is the root (1), the middle note is the 3rd, and the top note is the 5th.
A diminished triad is different from a minor triad by the fact that a diminished chord has an outer interval of a diminished 5th: the minor triad has a perfect 5th.
An augmented triad consists of an augmented 5th as an outer interval, and a major 3rd as a bottom interval.

 Welsh Triads - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Welsh Triads (Welsh Trioedd Ynys Prydein, literally "Triads of the Island of Britain") are a group of related texts in medieval manuscripts which preserve fragments of Welsh folklore, mythology and traditional history in groups of three.
The triad form probably originated amongst the Welsh bards or poets as a mnemonic aid in composing their poems and stories, and later became a rhetorical device of Welsh literature.
The earliest surviving collection of the Welsh Triads is bound in the manuscript Peniarth 16, now at the National Library of Wales, which has been dated to the third quarter of the 13th century and containing 46 of the 86 triads edited by Rachel Bromwich.

 Triads
A triad is a group of three notes which are related by thirds.
The first group is a triad built on the note C. The triad contains the three notes C, E, and G (C to E is a third and E to G is a third-a stack of two thirds).
Of the seven triads which are spelled on natural notes (no sharps or flats) three are major, three are minor, and one is diminished.

 Triad
The higher triad, speaking in the simplest fashion, is the unity of atman, buddhi, and the higher manas; and the lower quaternary consists of the lower manas or kama-manas, the prana or vitality, the linga-sarira or astral model-body, and the physical vehicle.
The higher triad is often spoken of in a collective sense, and ignoring details of division, as simply the reincarnating monad, or more commonly the reincarnating ego, because this latter is rooted in the higher triad.
Another form of the triad is that in which the unit is considered as the offspring of the duad, as in the familiar triad Father-Mother-Son; and thus we get a quaternary of the primordial triad with the manifested universe as Son.

 Significance and Chronology of the Triads: A Supplement to Mohism
For example, in at least four triads, both the "upper" and "middle" essays fall into the first linguistic group, the "lower" essay falls into the second, and the third is empty.
Because these replacements were shorter than the other essays, they were placed first in their respective triads, thus pushing the original "upper" and "middle" series texts out of place and disrupting the original neat arrangement of these series.
In addition, in at least four triads and perhaps more, the division also relates to the essays' origin: The "upper," "middle," and "lower" essays were probably composed by different writers or editors.

 Tonic and Dominant Triads
We say that the triad shown above, built on the note 'A', is a tonic triad because it has been built on the tonic note of the key we're in- A-major.
It is traditional to indicate the triad by using a Roman numeral.
In a dominant triad, there is always that leading tone, the middle note, that "wants" to move up to the tonic.

 Triads in music and math
It is fascinating how the single consistent difference between the so-called major and minor triads or scales is a change affecting the third note of the diatonic scale.
Altering the third note of the 8-note diatonic scale downwards by just one semitone bestows upon the whole scale a sense of melancholy, mournfulness, yearning, (and the associated human emotions of the 'minor keys' of music), and this remains an unexplained mystery of music and the human experience of it.
Numbers, as originally conceived, were the pragmatic progeny of accounting and commerce; but slowly, as they ‘grew’, were seen by the Pythagoreans (and others) as having a meaning that stretched far beyond the mere representation of ‘quantities’ and the collections of material objects that had spawned their introduction.

 Triads and key
Triads in tonal music are defined as three-note chords that have a root pitch, a third above the root, and a fifth above the root.
Triads can be inverted two ways: first inversion has the third as the lowest note, second inversion has the fifth as the lowest note.
The primary triads in a key are the tonic, subdominant, and dominant triads, also known as I, IV, and V respectively (in a major key, i, iv, and V in a minor key).

Triads are constructed by stacking 2 intervals of a third on top of each other.
The smoothest way to combine two different triads is to look for common tones, leave them where they are and move the remaining notes by step into their new target.
Minor triads are constructed by measuring the interval of a minor third followed by a major third.

The term "triad" was first used "by British authorities in Hong Kong as a reference to the triangular shape of the Chinese character for 'secret society.'" (Bolz 147) These modern day secret societies are changing the face of organized crime, as the American knows it.
Most of the Triad sects today can only trace their actual creation to the eighteenth or nineteenth centuries during last dynasty of China, the Qing, which existed from 1644-1911.
The triads also developed highly ritualized initiation ceremonies meant to instill a strong sense of secrecy, and more importantly, loyalty to other triad members.

 The Seven Triads of Sustainability
The research results are put forth as seven 'Triads of Sustainability' - where seven issues (participation, decision-making, partnership, governance, knowledge and information, continual improvement, and lifestyles) leading to sustainability are explained in detail with case studies.
These triads are key ingredients that define and drive sustainability, particularly at the local level.
The descriptions of each triad outline its three key components and related issues, but the real challenge will be to convert these components into locale-specific procedures and working methodologies that will achieve the desired result - achieving sustainability.

Triads are simple three-note chords built of thirds.
So the simplest way to write a triad is as a stack of thirds, in root position.
For example, if the F sharps are written as G flats, or if the A's are sharp instead of natural, you have a different chord, not an inversion of the same chord.

In general, triads are only useful for very small domains (12 items or less) or for testing hypotheses (where it is important that every respondent make an active judgement regarding the similarities among a certain set of items).
Perhaps the most interesting use of triads was by Romney and D'Andrade (1964) who used them to test two theories of cognition about American male kinship roles, such as grandfather, father, son, grandson, uncle, brother, nephew and cousin.
Another way to use triads is as a device to spark discussion of the underlying attributes that people use to distinguish among items in the domain.

 Chord Progressions for Viola da Gamba and Lute -- triads of C Major on Bass Viol
Note, when you add the minor scales and their natural triads you essentially complete the picture (the pallets and flavors) and have available the resources of what is called the Major/minor system, or the grand pallet.
When studying four-part harmony, triads are often played using inverted voicings (where the third or fifth of the chord is lowest or in the bass, rather than the root) and with one of their tones doubled, e.g.
The next logical things to explore are the minor scale triad pallets, larger voicings, triad barre-chords, inverted triad voicings, seventh chords, seventh chords in progression, inverted seventh chords and beyond.
