I understood how to invert the chords (moving the bass note an octave above). When it comes to melodies I have seen many examples on the net but cant seem to understand the idea behind it.
This example above is given on wikipedia. On the sources they say you invert the melody upside down. This is not what I get when I invert it upside down. I dont understand it.
Could someone please explain it in a simple way and why we do this?
