We're learning a new 9th chord shape and a new 7th chord shape in this example.
The 9th chord shape that we're playing for the I chord is interesting in that the 7th and 9th degrees are in the lower register of the inversion. The 7th chord inversion I use for the IV and V chords is one of my favorites. This shape continues with my theme of using the top four strings and keeping the harmony tight.
Watch good keyboard players and notice how they play interesting chords without moving their hands much. Let's consider that as we move forward.
