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 show you how to practice the 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:

These free lessons are cool, but you will never experience the progress, joy, and results that my students experience in lessons when you’re learning by yourself from blogs and videos.

That is why people take lessons: way better results and progress, much more complete information, exposed to way more creative ideas than you can get from a blog or YouTube video.
There is only so much that self-study can accomplish.

If you want to see amazing results and progress in your guitar playing, buy your first lesson here and get started ASAP.
