Hi, I have recently joined my High School Jazz Band. The teacher was desperate for a guitarist, so I joined, but since I am self taught, and am used to playing complicated metal and neo-classical styles, I don't know how to read chords!

I need help, maybe a link to a site that can tell me what Cmi9 or F9 means, or someone could help me one-on-one.

Please help!
life is beautifuuuuooooaaaaaal
this site has lessons which will help you. click on lessons at the top then search "jazz chords" or "chord theory"
