I'm having trouble remembering jazz chords such as Maj9, 6th, 13th, and 6/9 chords. The shapes of them are new to me, and I've been trying to learn them for jazz band. Besides practicing a bunch, what are some ways to remember them?
these shapes arent too tuff .. but a good way to remember is just to know how are they made up... and when you take a guitar,you could form them yourself,also finding new voicings other then the common shapes
Practice them, write out the shapes. Writing things down really helps you remember them.
you already know, play them a million times. play them until you could play them in your sleep.
Remembering the fingering. Helped me remember a few chords.
