Hello, can anyone recommend a book to help me learn 1st and 2nd chord inversions and root inversions.

Thank you,
Joe

Why do you think that you need a book?

Just flip the root chord with the root from the bottom to on top, now you have 1st inversion, flip it again, 2nd inversion.

There's not much to teach, it's all grunt work, just keep practicing them over and over up and down the keyboard. Do a 1-4-5 or something using the inversions that are closest to each other.

You could write them out yourself and then you would learn them and in the end you would also have a book.

I don’t think of inversions as flipping the root from the bottom to the top but moving the hand up one position with the same notes.... c e g becomes e g c etc. just another approach. I never used a book to learn these.

This is kind of a broad question, maybe you could focus the question a little more:

Are you looking for exercises to play chords and inversions fluently?
Are you looking for music theory to teach you to identify (or build) chords and inversions?
Are you wanting to understand how to play from a lead sheet using chords and inversions?
Are you wanting to learn how to use chords and inversions in the creation of harmony?

Or something else?
