A7.
Open A, C sharp, with the fourth finger,
first finger on E, open G,
and that's root position.
First inversion starting on C sharp,
fourth finger.
E natural with the first finger.
Open G.
First finger on A.
First inversion.
Second inversion with the fifth
in the bass would be E natural,
first finger, open G, first finger on A.
C sharp with the fourth finger, and then
we'll go down for the seventh in the bass.
This is third inversion.
G natural.
With the second finger open A.
And then C sharp with the fourth finger.
And then E natural with the first finger.
So A7 sounds like this.

Again, notice I'm
connecting all the notes.
For now, I'm just trying to get you to
connect everything, hear the pitches,
make the bass ring.
