Flamenco, Bluegrass, Jazz, and Classical guitar. I truly liked your lesson on chord progressions.
This I found to be a very useful lesson on chord progressions and chords. You read this and suddenly the penny drops and you take another step forward. You and Matt are great teachers! Awesome foundation study. No guitarist can ever know too many II V I progressions.
I will pass this on!!! Dank je wel, Dirk. After years of playing pop,rock,funk. I am now moving to jazz. Thank you so much. This is of real help. Keep it coming. A very valuable lesson even for non guitar beginners… I finally clearly understood how these chords are built.
Once again it is shown that a picture is worth a thousand words… Roland.
Dirk great idea for that kind of lesson. If it is meant for beginners its maybe more easy for them if you insert the fingering instead of the interval relationship into the chart.
Just a hint from a colleague. A great insight into jazz chords for beginners, which IMHO is as equally important as single lines. I am a visual artist, so I am not always able to follow the lessons in time, but it is just so convinving and seducing all the stuff you send!
I am sure I will go through all of it as soon as possible. Dirk it is so nice to receive lessons from you. They are so informative and helpful. Thanks man!
Just seen this. Many thanks in advance. It took awhile for me to learn the basic Jazz chord changes. I see that you have presented these chords in a straight forward manner. Thanks for demystifying this important part of learning Jazz. Excellent lesson. Is there any way to download the tracks from the sound cloud?
Got the email link this morning, read through the page and started practicing the useful cycle exercises. Its not boring or rigorous, easy-on-the-eyes, easy-to-understand, succinct and to the point.
Good Job Dirk, and thanks for your generosity. Dirk and Matt—Like Dr. Mudaliar and Mr. Chasba, I took up guitar when I retired college professor some years ago. Because it sounds like part of a jazz tune, it adds to the enjoyment of playing and learning these chords. Bravo and kudos to you both, and thanks again! The great lesson: Thanks to remember Dirk! As a beginner, I would find both very helpful. The intervals teach me the role of each note in the chord, and the fingering shows me how to play it.
The finger numbers could be placed to the right of each chart next to the strings that are being pressed, including the muted ones. By far, this is the most simplest yet interesting Jazz tutorial I have ever tried.
Excellent work and thanks heaps, Dirk. So much to learn and so slow at it but really appreciate your course and love the insights I have from learnng to play when listening to it. Thank you for your lessons. I am very new here, first steps in jazz, and I have not used tabs before.
I am not familiar with the graphical presentation of chords above. I guess vertical lines are strings, and horizontal are frets? Black dots are fingers? What are the small gray dots? Also not sure of positions, because fret numbers are not marked? That is why I am very confused. Could someone explain? Hi Ollie, horizontal lines are strings, vertical lines are frets. Black dots are fingers, grey dots are the same dots as on your fretboard.
Frets are marked by a number below the diagram, no number indicates first position. Nice work. Appreciate your effort with putting your lessons together. It would have been nice to have link to a printable pdf of the chord shapes. This is really helpful.. I learnt quite good progressions from you. Million thanks for sharing this valueble knowledge with us.
Warm wishes from Sri Lanka. Is it possible? Will be waiting anxoiusly for the next lesson.. Also i would like to ask, why is bebop so complicated, harmonically.. And how do we use quartal harmony.. And by the way could you give some famous examples of 2 5 1, and 1 6 2 5 progressions..
This lesson could not have come at a better time. This lessons organizes all my scraps of paper into one location. I wish I had seen this stuff 30 years ago. Muchas muchas gracias!!!
Saludos desde Argentina! Now the translation: Thank you very much! Great tutorial, helps a lot to introduce ourselves into this beautiful world people call jazz.
Greetings from Argentina! A big help for me the beginner. Great presentation and advice. The suggestion of a back ground loop may be helpful. Hi I love those basic chords, really useful. Very helpful and keep them coming. Your basic book is fantastic and recommend this to everyone and the price is so cheap.
Hi What I do is look for where the R is. That will tell you where to play the chord. For example if the R is on the fifth string on the third fret it is some form of a C chord.
As you become more familiar with the notes up and down the neck diagrams like this are very helpful because you begin to get a feeling for where the various chord tones are placed in reference to one another. For example if you know where the various chord tones are located in a particular fingering you can just lower the 7th 2 frets one whole step to get a major 6 chord. FRom Malaysia, thanking you so much for this illustration.
The knownledge of chord construction is well explained. I have a question: Hey Michael, the 5 is the least important chord note and is not critical to define the chord. Thanks for the explanation. I can only imagine how much work goes into assembling this lesson, which I and others greatly appreciate. Would you consider supplementing it with a YouTube video to help on the most efficient fingers for the exercises?
This is such a treat — Great little lessons that have applicable backing tracks Thanks so much!!! When in doubt or in search for inspiration , I always return to this site.
You manage to clarify things in a structured and understandale way, there where most other sites fail. Thank you so much ,,,, it helps me as a blues player to gett in the jazz , it is not easy but i have so much fun to play progressions and learn new cords on that way. Huub Luik. Thank You Dirk!!
Great stuff. If these were extracted from a book I could download and put on a music stand it would be more practical. Because of this I dont understand how all the guys above find this so great.
As it would be a good idea for a guitarist to learn the chord fingerings usings mostly 4 different fingers to sounds the chords, some of them can be quite tricky for the uninitiated.
Take for an example, a shaped dominant 7-chord with the root on 5th string: The lower on the fretboard you voice the chord, the bigger the stretch, right? If possible, it would be great to have a lesson or tips on practicing the chords and the more demanding chord voicings, i. Thanks for sharing, you are the best website jazz. Thanks for include chord progressions to teach it, is a great learning tool. A million hugs my friends.
The lessons are very helpful and deeply appreciated. Thanks again. Thanks very much for the lessons , please add a lesson on quartal harmony on the style of Ed Bickert. Great lesson, in spite of considering myself an intermediate player with decent rhythm and comping chops this lesson is a welcome refresher.
It is too easy to slip into lazy or convenient fingerlings and lose track of the available alternatives. Hey great lesson and it was exactly what I needed right now! I thought the 3rd was more important than the fifth because it provides the major quality.
Is this something we should try to avoid if we can i. Which voicing would be better for a jazz situation? The problem with that is it tends to sound too muddy when you bring the 3rd in, too many low strings vs. So skipping the 5th string, and the 3rd in this case, solves that problem and still keeps the sense of the chord. Hope that helps. Thank you for the lessons, they are so helpful.
Chords and understanding how to form them are one of the fundamentals of playing Jazz guitar. Blows my mind how good they are and the generosity. Thanks Dirk and all who add! Thank you very much. A great lesson. As indeed other.
