Watch the Pole Position online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Chord Studies: Inversions Vol. 1

This example will demonstrate playing the inversions of a C Major triad on the second, third, and fourth strings.  We'll begin here with the first inversion down in open position, then the second inversion in the fifth fret, the root position in the eighth fret, and finally the first inversion again this time in the twelfth fret.  Watch your chord diagrams for the muted first string in the second and third chord.
