Watch the Following Footsteps online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Chord Studies: Slash Chords Vol. 1
We are playing the same Am progression as in the last example but here we are using different inversions to get different sounds. Starting in fifth position, you'll notice that this Am is taken straight from your six string Am barre chord. Move down two frets and add finger two to grab the G/A. Move down again, keeping the A in the bass for the F/A. For the D/E you have to mute the fifth string with the tip of your index finger while allowing the low E string to sound.
