Lesson #20
F Position - L.H. Chords

3 Chord Positions

3-note chords have 3 positions; root position, 1st inversion and 2nd inversion.

  • Root position and 2nd inversion are the two most used chord positions when playing 3-note chords in the left hand.

3 Chord Positions


I covered chord positions in an earlier lesson, but it's worth repeating, and chances are, I will cover this topic again each month.

  • In the first video below you will be learning the F major chord in root position.

  • Root position is when the root note, (the F), is the lowest note in the chord. (see illustration below)



When the F major chord is in 1st inversion, the F is the top note of the chord. I rarely play the F major chord in 1st inversion.




When the F major chord is in 2nd inversion, the F is the middle note of the chord.

  • I use the F major chord in 2nd inversion on a fairly regular basis.

Take your time and don't worry if you don't get it right away. Your ear will develop with each new online piano lesson.


Understanding Chord Positions

It's good to be familiar with the different positions of each chord, but it's not necessary to memorize them...they will come to you in time.

The best thing to do is memorize each chord in root position and learn the inversions as the need arises.
