Let’s explore what a major chord is. A major chord usually consists of a root, a third, a fifth and a major seventh. For example CMaj7 chord tones are C (root), E (major third), G (fifth) and B (major seventh).
We can play a chord four different ways starting from:
- The root C, E, G, B
- The third E, G, B, C (1st inversion)
- The fifth G, B, C, E (2nd inversion)
- The seventh B, C, E, G (3rd inversion).
Play trough the notes of all four inversions one after another and you have a broken chord CMaj7. Make sure you join the notes smoothly, especially as you move between inversions.
