Drop 2 Voicing Explained (August 2010)

This concept arises when constructing chord inversions utilising the degrees (notes) of a scale.

Remember, the 1, 3, 5, 7 is the basic major chord, not the first inversion.

Take the first inversion of a chord as an example.
The second last degree 1, 3, 5, 7 when constructing a chord, is placed first. This note will be 5, so we will obtain 5, 1, 3, 7 as the chord formula for the first inversion.

You can see the 5 has been located 1 octave below its original 1st inversion position.

With Guitarmodes method as your basis, you will have the knowledge to constuct all chords and all their inversions across the entire fretboard at beginner level in the first lesson.

This is not a con.
