The maj7 Arpeggio 1st Inversion Fingering

The maj7 Arpeggio 1st Inversion Fingering

Before we get into this fingering, make sure that you check last week’s blog first to learn more about the maj7 chord.
The maj7 Root Position Arpeggio Fingering.

Last week’s blog also talks about how to practice these arpeggios, covering practice chord progressions that you will also use to practice today’s maj7 1st inversion fingering.

Before we have a look at the fingering: A quick side note about chord inversions.
“Inversions” are different configurations of the notes that make up the chord.
Each of the 4 notes in a 7th chord, can be the lowest note in the chord, or as is the case in arpeggios: the starting note.

  1. The configuration where the root is the lowest/starting note, is called “root position” (i.e. C E G B)
  2. When you start from the 3rd, it is called “1st inversion”. (i.e. E G B C)
  3. When you start from the 5th, it is called “2nd inversion”. (i.e. G B C E)
  4. When you start from the 7th, it is called “3rd inversion”. (i.e. B C E G )

Here’s the fingering for the Cmaj7 arpeggio starting from the 3rd of the chord, also called “1st inversion”.
