The m7 Chord, 2nd and 3rd Inversion Arpeggio Fingerings.

In case you’re not sure what “inversion” means, you can learn all about inversions here:

Chord Inversions

You can learn about the m7 chord here:

The m7 Root Arpeggio
and here: The Am7 1st Inversion Arpeggio

These blogs also shows you how to practice arpeggios we’ll be covering in today’s blog.

Today we’re covering the Am7 arpeggio starting from the 5th and from the b7th of the chord.
This is also called 2nd inversion (from the 5th) and 3rd inversion (from the b7th)

Here’s how you play the 2nd inversion Am7 arpeggio.


Here’s how you play the 3rd inversion Am7 arpeggio.


If you would like to practice these fingerings by soloing over an Am blues:
move the fingerings up 5 frets from the Am chord locations, for Dm chords.
For the Em chord: move the Am7 fingerings up 7 frets (or in other words: 2 frets above Dm)

If that doesn’t make sense: the videos in the blogs mentioned earlier should help.
Here’s another video showcasing all the above:
