12 Dominant 7th Guitar Chords - Number 6

Inversion number 6: we're half way through our series of 12 Dominant 7th Chords every guitarist should know. Today's dominant 7th inversion is again on the middle four strings of the guitar and has its root note on the B string of the guitar.

G7 guitar chord

This inversion uses the notes of G7 in this order:
  • F (the b7th)
  • B (the 3rd)
  • D (the 5th)
  • G (the root note)
In a future post we'll look at modifying these chords to make them minor 7th, half diminished, 9th, major7th and so on but for now get used to mixing up all of the dominant 7th chords we've used so far and transposing them to different keys.
