It?™s jam night. Someone calls out the inevitable A minor to D9 vamp. You take the first solo and light the joint up. Now it?™s your turn to comp. First couple of choruses, no problem. Next few, your comp is getting a little tired but you're hanging in there. Now the soloist starts to ramp things up and you?™re plumb out of ideas. Audience gets restless. Soloist glares. Gig is up. Been there? Yup, join the club.

Any instructor will tell you that the vast majority of players suffer from the same malady with respect to their rhythm playing; a severely limited vocabulary of chords, comping applications and rhythm patterns. What to do? Take a few trips with Frank Vignola on his Inversion Excursion.

Take a look at what's in the Course:



Unlike those dusty chord books in the closet, Inversion Excursion is no dull memorisation process. True to TrueFire form, you will play your way through this study program building your vocabulary of chords, patterns and applications in a musical context working through 59 video lesson performance examples, which demonstrate a wide variety of rhythm patterns and comping applications for blues, rock, jazz, twang and everything in between. Study a set of inversions, pick a key, grab a new pattern and apply over one of the 60 practice rhythm tracks included with Inversion Excursion.

Your Inversion Excursion itinerary takes you from simple Major triads using the 1st 2nd 3rd Strings through Major 7ths, Major 6ths, and Major 9ths on the 3rd 4th 5th 6th Strings before moving on to the same with Minor and Dominant chords, altered Dominants and rounding off with Progressions and Cyclic movement.

Over the course of your Inversion Excursion journey you'll develop a massive vocabulary of chords, patterns and applications that you can pull out when comping, arranging, composing and improvising. In short, you'll NEVER find yourself struggling to come up with something fresh and appropriate, if not downright dazzling.

Who's it for?
All intermediate to advanced level guitarists who are short on ideas but big on aspirations.

124 full-length video lessons covering 62 sets of inversions, across all chord types and all string groups. 800 PDF pages of charts illustrate all 62 sets, in all 12 keys providing a handy reference for over 2,500 Root, 1st Inversion, 2nd Inversion and 3rd Inversion chords. PLUS 59 video lesson performance examples (with PIP video of the left-hand), which demonstrate a wide variety of rhythm patterns and comping applications for blues, rock, jazz, twang and everything in between.
