Watch the C Major 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 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 are great with a simple strumming pattern. I give you a nice simple strumming pattern to start but please create your own rhythm patterns and strumming patterns. It is also nice to slide into the chord starting one fret before the inversion and simply slide up to the appropriate inversion.
