Watch the C Dominant 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 dominant 9 inversions are used a lot in funk music. Those classic funk bands always had great rhythm guitarists playing these funky dominant 9th chords.
