Upper-Voicing Triads

Now we're going to expand on our chord voicings. Our rhythm will stay exactly the same, but we're going to move around the neck in inversions. Don't change your right hand strumming technique at all for this. Just keep it going, and remember to keep it loose! Always keep those upbeats stronger than the downbeats.

However, you need to do more muting with your left hand. Use through thumb and extra fingers to mute any strings you are not playing on any stroke. Keep them from ringing! This is a valuable skill that you can apply to any style.

Practice moving inversions around all over the neck and get a strong command of this idea.
