Using the notes of an E major chord (E, G# and B,) we are going to take a look at all three triad inversions up the G, D, and A strings. All will be played with an open E string ringing as a reference tone. We will than use those E major triad inversions to play a rock rhythm example in the style of Dave Grohl (The Foo Fighters.) A good amount of distortion is applied to these low voicings to create a nice modern rock rhythm sound.
