Basic Inversions of Major Chords
In the examples shown so far, all of our bass movement has been descending, but it can work in an ascending fashion as well. In this example in E Major, our progression is E - D - G. Instead of having our bass note jump all the way to the open 4th string in measure 1, we can create an E - F# - G bass movement shown in mms 3-4. This is because we've replaced the D chord with a D/F# voicing that creates a better transition.
