I've been struggling with this inversion for quite a while, especially lower down the neck, such as the attached pictured tablature. Do you use your ring finger for the 2-string roll on the A and D string? Or your pinky? The two notes on the 7th fret of the A and D string, that is.

I find it a struggle to use my pinky to do the roll, as I don't feel in as much control, but funnily enough, when I use my ring finger, I tend to accidentaly bar/roll onto the G string as well, either as a muted note or, in the case of the arpeggio in the tab, the D on the 7th fret of the G string.

Just wondering if I'm missing something obvious that would make this inversion easier.

Yes I would probably attempt the pinky roll if I had to play this exact arpeggio.

However typically I tend to alter some notes here and there just as with the C major triad arpeggio position 3 (see below).

What many people do is play a C major 9 arpeggio instead - which often works and sounds cool.

Since fingering here mainly is a problem for shredding, no one will hear the difference anyway 😅

C major triad
--------------3-8--------------------------------
-----------5-----------------------------------
--------5--------------------------------------
-----5-----------------------------------------
-3-7--------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------


C major 9 arpeggio (shred "cheating" version!!)
-------------3-7-----------------
-----------5--------------------
-------4-7-----------------------
-----5--------------------------
-3-7-----------------------------
-------------------------------


So if you are learning this for a fast passage, why not try changing a few notes here and there? smile.gif

Heh, I have done that in the past, but I was kinda adamant in learning this exact inversion. smile.gif

I have also looked for alternative ways to play the one in my tab. I.e. without the sweep like Jason Richardson does, but I would like to learn all the tools and not "cheat" through it, but it's just my perfection speaking!

The way I would play like this:
A 7th fret - pink finger
D 7th fret - ring finger
G 5th fret - first finger rolling
B 5th fret - first finger rolling
E 5th fret - first finger rolling

Can you post a vid of you playing it slowly with the various approaches?

I'd start finger 1, 3 (HO), 4 (d string 7), 1 for all 5th frets etc. ...The end note doesn't have a PO so this should work.
