Watch the 3 Card Monte online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Chord Studies: Jazz Blues Progressions Vol. 1

Look closely at the voicings we’re using here in this 12-bar shuffle in the key of Bb. What do you see? Lots of 7th chords, a diminished 7th and a minor 7th. What else do you see? Nothing but three-note voicings! Keep these handy for those real uptempo grooves.
