Minor chord inversions

Minor chords can be inverted just as major chords. I am not going to explain the basics of chord inversions once more.

A minor chord in first inversion starts with a major third from the third to the fifth note. In C-minor this is Eb - G. Just as the minor third at the bottom of the major chord in first inversion a "minorish" sound, the major third at the bottom of the minor chord in first inversion will give it a "majorish" sound.

The second interval is the same perfect fourth as in the first inversion of the major chord, and gives it the same kind of concluding quality. But the outer interval is a major sixth from Eb to C.

In second inversion, the interval from the bottom to the middle note is a perfect fourth, just as the second inversion of the major chord. But the next is a minor third, and the outer interval is minor sixth.
