Watch the C Dominant 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 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 cool chords to play rhythm guitar strumming style. Check out how I use my pinky in the Root position inversion to suspend the E note on the B string moving it one fret to an F and back down to the E to create a bit of movement in the chord or rhythm guitar part. Try to find the suspended in each of the inversions and move it to F and back down to E. It's a good exercise and important to see and hear all the different notes in the chord. So with each inversion look at the chord and pick out the Root, 3rd, 5th and b7.
