Slowing down songs is another great way to learn from records and your song collection. I use Song Surgeon,
which works really well for this. Check it out.
Guitar Lesson Overview
Here are some inversions of Dominant 7 chords I often use. The key here is E. The chords in the video are in order: E7, E7, E7, E9, E13, E7, E9, E7.
The notes of the E7 chords are: E, G#, B, D.
The order of these notes can be rearranged - that's why we call them inversions. Look at the 3rd E7 in the video. The notes are here G#, B, D, E - see how the first note is now G# instead of E? This is an example of a chord inversion. Hope this helps.
The other chords shown are all part of the E7 family. Sometimes I play E9 or E13, but these too belong to the family of Dominant 7 chords, in the key of E.
