Minor triad arpeggios - I inversion fingerings

Hi everyone, and welcome back to another bass technique lesson. In this one we will talk about minor triad arpeggio fingerings, in I inversion on the lower octave of the bass. As you might guess from the previous lessons, the I inversion of a minor triad is played starting from the minor third, therefore IIIminor-V-I. 

For a C minor triad, the I inversion will be Eb-G-C. 

00:00 / 00:03

Disclaimer: the I inversion that you see here, is based on the lowest notes available on a 4-string bass, tuned as E-A-D-G. If you play a 5-string bass, consider using the lower notes available on the B-string, as shown here.

And the following are the fingerings available on a 4-string bass.

As a reminder, consider that in the vast majority of cases, and with the due exceptions, all the other keys will have the same fingerings as C.


Thank you for reading and happy practice!
