Chords in Inversion Just as writing a smooth, interesting melody is important, a smooth, interesting bass line is also important. Our ears are more able to hear the outer voices (i.e. the highest and lowest) than inner voices. For this reason, special care must be taken when writing bass lines. However, when the bass note of a chord is changed, theinversion of that chord also changes. Section 11: Inversion of Chords showed how to label and identify chords in inversion. This section will discuss how these inversions are used in common practice music.
