This time we will change one aspect of the exercise: instead of using root position triad chord voicing, we will use first inversion voicings.

We now have another shape that we can simply shift up and down the fretboard in order to create three different chords.

Again, once you start to practice these (and all the exercises in this series of lessons) you should start by playing the chord once for an entire two measures. Then try playing each chord as it changes once on each measure. Then try one chord per beat (quarter notes). Then you can try eighth notes.

Remember to try the picking option involving arpeggiation in eighth notes. Use all these options, mix and match them. Explore all the possibilities once you have the shapes and motions firmly under your fingers.
