Using the notes of an A minor chord (A, C, E), we are going to look at all three triad inversions up the B, G and D strings. All will be played with an open A string ringing as a reference tone. We will than use all three A minor triad inversions to play a rock rhythm example in the style of Eddie Van Halen. A slight muting is used along with playing these triads as arpeggios to create this affect with distortion.
