If you are unfamiliar with the concept of triad chord inversions, then I strongly suggest you review this tutorial which explicitly covers the theory of inversions and triad chord voicings:
We will use a backing track to practice these ideas using three major chords: A minor, D minor, and E minor & major. We will use the idea that a chord in it's most fundamental basic unit is only three notes: the 1st (root), minor 3rd and 5th from it's respective scale. Therefore, an A minor chord is the the 1st (root), minor 3rd and 5th from an A minor scale.
A minor scale:
A (1) - B (2) - C (3) - D (4) - E (5) - F (6) - G (7)
A minor chord:
A (1) - C (3) - E (5)
Anywhere on any musical instrument you can isolate, find and play these three notes you have an A minor chord.
From there we build chord inversions in order to achieve an A minor chord in a variety of voicings for different sounds. We do the same to D minor and E minor chords. We find a place to play these chords on the E, A and D strings. Then we are ready to practice!
We'll also add an E major chord to the end of the progression before it cycles around to start over. The reason for this is to use the opportunity of modulating to a V chord, making the "five" chord major in a minor key in order to see and hear how a little voice leading works.
I find it quite easy (so far!) to navigate, and found the "where do I start" to be very helpful! I'm getting there!!
I LOVE the forum, too. I've never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! Congrats on a WONDERFUL site!!Good job!
