I thought I had a pretty good understanding of inversions, until I ran across this tutorial video where he plays the following "inversions"
I understand that these are close triad voicings. But I'm confused how they can be considered inversions? I can see the standard inversion shapes in the treble clef, but inversions are defined by the lowest note played...and in all these cases the lowest note played is the root note, leaving them all in Root Position. Are we allowed to occasionally ignore notes played when referring to Chord names? If so, when is this allowed?
I have an additional question - I have a confusion around ordering of notes and repeated notes. Do these ever impact how we name a Chord? For example...
Despite notes being out of order and repeated, are all of these chords considered a Cmaj triad with either open or close voicings? In the first chord played, would you refer to that as playing 2 Cmaj triads in close position?
