C minor6

We've featured a few different minor chords in previous posts, today's chord is a C minor6. Minor6  chords are constructed by taking a normal minor triad (1, b3, 5) and adding a natural 6th. They are normally used as chord I in minor keys.

Play the root note on the E string with your middle finger, the D string with your first finger and barre across the top 3 guitar strings with your first finger.
Minor 6 chords can be played in the place of some minor chords and can replace chord i in minor keys. Minor 6 chords use these degrees of the major scale: 1, b3, 5, 6

C minor6 uses the notes: C, Eb, G, A

Our inversion uses the notes in this order: C, A, Eb, G, C.
