Watch the A Minor Chord Inversions online guitar lesson by Frank Vignola from Inversion Excursion
The difference between a major and minor chord is that the 3rd is flat in a minor chord. A major chord is 1-3-5 and a minor chord is 1-flat 3-5. We will work in the key of A minor to learn all the minor triads and extensions. The notes or spelling of an A minor chord is A-C-E or 1-flat 3-5. In this section we will go through all the 3 string A minor inversions moving horizontally and vertically across the fingerboard. We'll also look at and learn the various extensions including minor 7th, minor 6th, minor 9th, etc... Let's get started.
