Hey i was just wondering what are some baisic chords and scales used whilst playing jazz.

I recently found some Joe Pass & NHOP, and I fell in love with the sound of jazz.

any help?
I can do it!

And so can you!

Check the stickies at the top of the forum.
It's all good.

The regs here are a bit bitter from the inundation of n00b threads that we are a bit curt when it comes to dealing with them.
7 chords (including major and minor), 6 chords, 9 chords, common turnarounds like 7#9

That'll get you through a lot of standards.
