Good place to learn jazz chords?


View Full Version : Good place to learn jazz chords?

07-11-2009, 08:22 PM
I was just wondering if there was a good resource for me to teach myself some jazz chords? I don't have enough money for an instructor, and I live in a small town so I don't have the luxury of anyone that knows them.

Any help is appreciated.

I tried. I'm not looking for something getting indepth into Jazz music, because I won't be playing Jazz or orchestrating it like jazz.

I just can't find a straight way up finding Jazz Chords or jazz chords written as tabs or something. :|

I may sound a little snobbish, but... yeah.

Learn 7 chords then extensions?

its the way you play the chords, in chord progression, there is no jazz chords, just chords and scales, maybe 7ths and dimenish

Darkkon is right, all of the 7ths, extensions (9ths, 13ths) then alterations (b9, #9, b5, #5 etc)
