Tabs might get you started on the path to jazz, but to really get anywhere in this genre you're going to have to bite the bullet and learn to read standard notation, in my opinion.

Wes Montgomery, Miles Davis, Joe Pass, and why not listen to some BB King, and blues like Albert King.

Standard notation isn't hard to learn. Check out the jazz lessons on this site and many liken it to blues at several points ( you get 12 bar chord progressions in both for example ). Learn more altered chords ( dominant 7ths, major 7ths and beyound ), and get used to using the modes more and try improvising more.

Yep, like someone above said, you will need to throw away the numbers, and say hello to the black dots known as standard notation!

Joe Pass, Chick Corea, Miles Davis, Lenny Breau, Dave Brubeck..... There are many guys you could check out.

I don't really get your question though, you know the names, and are on a tab site. Is your question answered?
Don't tell me what can not be done

Don't tell me what can be done, either.



I love you all no matter what.
