Triad Superimposition: Find What YOU Like

If you just catalog the 12 possibilities inherent in superimposing major and minor triads over a (in this example) C root, then you can pick the ones that sound good to you you rather than just lifting somebody else’s system whole. Plus you’ll stop playing so many scales and start listening. I threw in the tritone for extra credit. Remember to transpose to all 12 keys. 144 total possibilities on each triad, but they are all symmetrical with the original 12.
