I've already written a post on the simpler jazz guitar chords in the sixth, fifth and fourth string forms. This time we're going to narrow things down a little more and focus on just the major and minor jazz chords.
They'll still all be in C, since each chord is movable and can apply to any fret on the fretboard.
For both the minor and major chords we'll cover the 6th and 7th version of each chords, so you'll get the following:
- Major 6th --
- Major 7th --
- Minor 6th --
- Minor 7th --
Major 6th Jazz Chords
Major 7th Jazz Chords
Minor 6th Jazz Chords
Minor 7th Jazz Chords
There are a few other major and minor jazz chords, including 9th and 11th variations. We've also got the dominant and diminished chords to contend with, which I'll cover in another post.
These jazz chords do involve some tough stretching in some cases, but since they're all movable, you'll have a lot at your finger tips if you learn these and the basic jazz chords that I mentioned earlier.
I've talked a lot about how to practice chords, and this is going to be pretty much the same procedure.
Just be sure to work on moving each chord, especially if jazz guitar chords are new to you, as they'll be more difficult to move than the chords that you're used to.
