Why not start by listening to some amazing Jazz standards!

Then, when you're ready to play, try learning some good old Jazz chords :) I'll give you a list of chords to work from. Try learning ONE of these chords all around the fretboard, once a day!



Chord Positions Root of "C" example
6th - R, 3, 5, 6 - C, E, G, A
6th add9 - R, 3, 5, 6, 9 - C, E, G, A, D
6th flat5 add 9 - R, 3, b5, 6, 9 - C, E, Gb, A, D
7th - R, 3, 5, b7 - C, E, G, Bb
7th flat 5 - R, 3, b5, b7 - C, E, Gb, Bb
7th flat 9 - R, 3, 5, b7, b9 - C, E, G, Bb, Db
9th - R, 3, 5, b7, 9 - C, E, G, Bb, D
11th - R, 3, 5, b7, 9, 11 - C, E, G, Bb, D, F
13th - R, 3, 5, b7, 9, 11, 13 - C, E, G, Bb, D, F, A
Major 7th - R, 3, 5, 7 - C, E, G, B

minor 6th - R, b3, 5, 6 - C, Eb, G, A
minor 7th - R, b3, 5, b7 - C, Eb, G, Bb
minor Major 7th - R, b3, 5, 7 - C, Eb, G, B

Augmented - R, 3, #5 - C, E, G#
7th aug - R, 3, #5, b7 - C, E, G#, Bb
7th aug flat 9 - R, 3, #5, b7, b9 - C, E, G#, Bb, Db

Diminished - R, b3, b5, bb7 - C, Eb, Gb, A
Half Diminished - R, b3, b5, b7 - C, Eb, Gb, Bb



I'll leave it as that for now! I hope this makes sense? If not, feel free to ask! And have a look at some of my lessons while you're at it, they will hopefully make things a little easier for you, too.

Consider this book:

Jazz & Popular Guitar by Arnie Berle

It gives you Jazz approach in the perspective of the Non "Jazz" context. Think the Beetle's They used Jazz concepts in Pop Music

The basic thing to do is to learn how to play ii-V-I progressions properly in both major and minor in all keys.
Then you alternate the V chord. The next thing you can do is to play different scale solutions over the chords in the progression, avoiding ionian and the aeolian scales.
This progression is essential to all modal jazz styles and are very importent to master when its very common. To go forward whit the basics you have to learn to master and alternate the V7 chord and different scale soultions. Its a good idea to learn about subsitutions too. All this exerice to metronome and to jazzdrums. Then you can look att some jazzstandards to play and practice to improvise over its progressions. It is popular to do a transcription of a famous improvisation of agood jazzartist will give you a lot of information and knowledge.
At least you have to do a lot of listening to jazzmusic and to study jazztheory. There is a lot of good sites especailly for jazztheory and for jazzguitar. Read some theorybooks. It can seem a bit confusing in the beginning but it will all come to you in time...

well nice lil list! one often wonders about this, at least i do, like which chords are most prominent in some style of music...

so can min9, min11 and minmaj9 or 11 also be added to this list?

i guess it can be said that with jazz ppl mostly use stuff with alot of tensions then?

[btw aug 7 + aug 7 b9 from this list exist as 7#5 and 7#5b9]

It refers to the triads built upon those roots in the scale. So in C major that would be: D min G maj C maj

JAzz books are very helpful. Knowing theory is essential along with certain patterns and other whatnot.

Books that are awesome:

The Jazz Theory Book by Mark Levine
However i LOVE:

The Modern Method for Guitar, volumes 1, 2, 3 by William Leavitt
Along with Reading Studies for Guitar by WIlliam LEavitt.

By the Way. Get a Real Book :)

Guitarslinger 124 helped my out whit the language and to insert the tabs.
I hope this lesson about the ii-V-I progression will straighten questions and answers about it out.

Here is the link, you will also find it under intermediate lessons and its called "How to play and use the ii-V-I progression properly."
