Watch the A Minor 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 great chords for the muted arpeggiated style picking to produce rhythm guitar parts. These muted picking techniques can also be utilized as picking exercises as well. Try the half step approach as well by playing the inversion one fret or one half step above the chord and play on beat four before sliding down to the applicable chord on beat one.
