On this course, Jamie Fyffe introduces major-seventh and minor-seventh chord shapes to add to the dominant-seventh voicings learned in Jazz Guitar Chords (1).
These are combined to form the II-V-I (chord progression) a common harmonic building block in jazz, explored here through several well-known jazz compositions.
Who is this course for?
This course is for people who already play guitar and want to explore jazz guitar chords, new ways of voicing your chords and how to produce that jazz guitar sound.
In order to get the most out of the course, it is expected that you’ve already completed Jazz Guitar Chords (1).
