Watch the C Major 7 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, finger picking 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 also lend themselves to the latin or bossa nova style of guitar playing as well as jazz and pop music. In the manuscript there is a sample rhythm. Make up your own rhythms and be creative! Check out the arpeggiated sound with these chords as well.
DON'T FORGET--Play these inversions in other keys utilizing the other jam tracks in other keys!
