Keyboard, Piano, Chords and Inversions

by Aidan
(Bedfordshire )

Hello. I'm new to keyboards. I've bought a yamaha E463. As you'll know it can be a piano but also can provide auto accompaniment. I want to learn the piano and am doing so using tutorial books. The first left hand chord I learned was C using the notes C E G on the octave to the left of middle C. Great.

But when I use Kenneth Baker's Complete Keyboard Player it tells me to use different chords. See photos. I understand that the electronic keyboard chords are inverted chords but I really want to use the chords that I'm learning for the piano. In other words I don't want to learn inversions until I'm more advanced. I hope I'm making sense.
