Chord Inversions Aplenty

Here's a pretty interesting array of chord inversions. All of the chord inversions are 7th (1,3,5,7) chords and feature a root chord and three inversions (3rd, 5th and 7th). I didn't have the room to write all of the information but consider the bottom note of each chord to dictate which inversion is being played - you can always compare that note to the root note and find it in your corresponding scale. I started the inversions as close to the top nut as possible, so you're not always starting on the root chord. Some of these sound really slick.


  1. Wow, not only did you add some nice voicings there, you managed to cover all the inversions on all the available strings. Thanks for sharing your knowledge with the guitar community.

  2. I love the jazz chord inversions with the skipped A string. Glad these were of use to you Hugo! Let me know more about that film project, I'm interested in hearing the score you did for it.

  3. Hey,,,these are VERY tasty! So moody and expressive! Another door has been opened for me! I mean, just taking 2 or 3 of these, and playing each as a slow arpeggio, letting each note ring,,,,ahhhhh,,,THAT is the GOOD STUFF!
