Watch the Going Nowhere online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Chord Studies: Evolving Triads Vol. 1
Continuing with our I - IV - V in A, we start with a first inversion triad coming right out of the C form of the CAGED system. If you move up one fret and drop your second finger on the third string you'll have root position D triad. Move back down and grab the second inversion E chord with a barre. You'll notice that your hand doesn't move much in this progression, making it an easy one to get going.
