Great exercise! And it can be expanded to all the different string sets, so 654, 543, 432, 321 to get those triads and inversions through the scale and across the entire fretboard. Great stuff! -------------------- Ask me anything on the theory board. Follow my theory course. Check out my personal site

So you can learn these inversions, and then take any major scale and use them to harmonize it: ) QUOTE (Headbanger @ May 26 2013, 07:55 PM) A more visual diagram and detailed explanation would help if possible please.
