Watch the C Major 9 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 are some of my favorite inversions. These chords are great used on two and four in a Pop or wedding style band. When playing on beats 2 and 4 lock into and listen to the snare drum as it is also playing on beats two and four in the jam track groove.
