Spread triads are a fun way to play your triads. Spread triads are formed by taking the middle note in the chord and moving it up an octave. So if we are forming a C chord (C - E - G: Intervals 1-3-5) we take the E and move it up an octave. The new spelling of the chord would be C - G - E. The result is a triad with bit more character.
