This video teaches you how to play 16 different jazz chord voicings of the diatonic 7th chords nested within the major scale. Rather than just throw a bunch of chord fingerings at you, the lesson demonstrates a simple and systematic approach to creating chord voicings. This approach can be applied to any scale (e.g. Harmonic Minor, Melodic Minor, etc.).

    What amp are u using in this video, sir?
    I have a small yamaha amp. i cant recall the model but it sucks. the sound easily cracks and the bass is just awful.
    What would u suggest for a not so small and affordable one?

  8. Gitaa A says:

    This is great but how do you apply these chords to a song? Or is this just an exercise?

  9. Wolf Castle says:

    There are no such things like “jazz chords”. There are jazz chord progressions.

    Hey, buddy! I like to play bossa nova, jazz. What brand is your guitar?

  15. Peter Fedorenko says:

    That guitar is so beautiful- Great lesson, too.

  16. Hellfire SPMA says:

    idk the fingerings for a lot of those chords and you don’t say them so you’re just running down the neck with chord names and that kind of makes it harder for someone that doesn’t know the fingerings to follow. kind of shitty for a guitar lesson video and shitty of guitar videos in general – a lot of people do this.

  17. Prince James says:

  24. Marvin Sheats says:

    Thank you. Extremely useful and needed.

  25. Ian Peden says:

    2:20- did you mean TOP four strings? 2:40 – move it UP a set of strings, not down. It’s good that it’s clear from the video what you are doing. Good lesson.

    I know this video has been here a while and I am way late to the party but I must compliment ArgentinaGuitar on such a no-nonsense, no “fluff” video. There is so much “meat” here to digest. I’ve played guitar some 50 years and I know many of these voicings, but the simple concept of playing the major scale on each string never occurred to me. Some chords are quite a stretch, yes. But the voicings are worth it. Thank you for your contribution.
