Inversion fingering

Post by CaptainAhabNZ on Wed Sep 10, 2008 11:44 am

Hi Andrew,
I am practicing my 2nd inversions of chords, and I notice when I do the second inversion of the chords with my left hand I can do them all (major ones ) using fingers 1,2,4,5 but when I do them with my right hand I have to use two "types" of fingering ie if I do a C Major I use 1,2,4,5 but when I do C#Major I have to use 1,2,3,5, is that correct or am I doing something wrong? scratch

Razz Thanks Andrew, I was not sure I was doing it right, but man working with the inversions is freaky, I have got so used to looking at the chords in the root postion, but as I discover each inversion it starts to make things a little clearer, songs I had tried to learn bits of and I could not understand why the fingering was what it was, now I see it is the inversion.....ahh it's one of lifes little triumphs I guess cheers
