Jazz Guitar Chords / Chord Shells

with Marcelo Berestovoy

In this lesson from Marcelo Berestovoy’s JamPlay course, Jazz Chording & Comping (Core Skills), you will explore Jazz guitar chords / chord shells — a quick and easy way to maneuver through jazz chord progressions without actually fleshing out the full chord.

Chord shells are very useful and you definitely want to learn them with the roots on sixth and fifth strings. Marcelo will walk you through these variations while providing tips for finding an implementation for each chord progression that is comfortable for you.

By the way, if you don’t know how to play the 12-bar Blues, stop whatever you’re doing and learn that.

This lesson ends with a few simple exercises to help you practice the chord shells you just learned. Play along with Marcelo’s 12-bar Jazzy Blues progression.

Jazz Chording & Comping: Core Skills contains 24 lessons along with backing tracks that let you play along. To access the full course, you must become a JamPlay member.
