Majar/Minor Chord Inversions (part 2)

By Jerome

In part 1, I wrote about root chords. Here, we look at first inversions, where the 3rd note is at the bottom, followed by the 5th, and the root.



---------

---5-----
---5-----
---7-----

7 is the MAJOR 3rd, a B note
5 is The Perfect 5th, a D note
5 is the ROOT note which is a G note

B, D and G form the G Chord

Just transpose it to play other chords...

Here are the other chords in the video.
