Now that we've covered the most common major triad inversions, we will cover the minor triad inversions. If you know your major inversions, this section will be easy. We will simply alter one note in each of our inversion shapes to play minor triad inversions. The note altered is the 3rd of the chord. Since we are using D minor in this lesson to illustrate the inversions on strings 1, 2, and 3, the note in each chord that we have altered is an F. If you know your D major inversions from a previous lesson, this adjustment should be a piece of cake. We'll try putting these inversions in an example in the style of Shania Twain.
