Watch the Extra Mile One online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Chord Studies: Inversions Vol. 1
Now we move on to the inversions of a C Major triad on the third, fourth, and fifth strings. We begin with the root position down in open position, then move to the fifth, then the ninth, and finally the twelfth fret for the octave. Here's a little fingering tip: maintain your third finger's contact with the fifth string through all three inversions. Another tip: the group of fingerings you see for this example also applies to the triad inversions on the fourth, fifth, and sixth strings.
