Inversions Explained!

Inversions in music are the idea of ‘flipping’ two notes around. So in stead of the intervals from C to G (which is 5 notes away – C D E F G) you simply invert that creating an interval from G to C (which is 4 notes away G A B C)

Inversions follow the concept of “Rule of 9

      R 3 5 in a C chord is C E G. So I’m referring to playing the third interval (in this example the ‘E’ note) in the bass. It sounds bad in many examples, but if rarely done well, then it’s effective. Bass territory is usually below Middle C, or in Bass Clef.
