Watch the A Minor Chord Inversions online guitar lesson by Frank Vignola from Inversion Excursion
Now it's time to practice these inversions with a jam track. Start by strumming or hybrid finger/pick strum 4 or 8 beats per inversion moving to each inversion in a smooth and effortless manner. When learning something new, we tend to tighten up putting way too much pressure on the guitar neck which in turn makes it harder to play smoothly. Relax while making the move in between inversions and concentrate on trying not to squeeze the guitar neck too hard.
These inversions sound classical in nature and are used quite often in the Bach Lute transcriptions for guitar and other classical guitar pieces. These are cool inversions to use specific rhythm patterns as in the examples I display for you. Make up your own patterns and visualize the next inversion before playing it.
In this example I show you how to move a note within a chord to have a moving line within a chord. Great for introductions or accompaniment.
