Watch the A Minor Maj7 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.
We start by simply playing each of the inversions as whole notes playing them cleanly and with good tone. Visualize the next chord before you move to it. Listen for each of the different intervals within the chords. These are very unique sounding chords. Try moving the major 7th in the chord to the minor 7th then minor 6th creating a moving line within the chord as demonstrated in the video segment.
