Major triad arpeggios - II inversion fingerings

Hi guys, and welcome back to another bass technique lesson. 

In this one we will study the fingerings for the II inversion of major triads. As we already know, a major triad is based on the root, third and fifth, and to play inversions, we have to change the order of the notes being played. In the case of a II inversion, we play in order the V-I-IIImajor.

 

Therefore for a C major triad, the II inversion will be played as G-C-E.

The following slides will give you different available positions to play those three notes on the first octave of your fretboard. Remember that, in the vast majority of cases, all the other keys will have the same fingerings as C.

00:00 / 00:03
00:00 / 00:04

Make sure to practice daily the previous positions, and use the same fingerings on different keys, practicing one key at a time. 

Thank you for reading and happy practice!
