Watch the Dominant Chords online guitar lesson by Frank Vignola from 1-2-3 Jazz Chord Melody

Now let's move on to dom7 moveable chord types. We're going to work with Cdom7 to start, I'll show you the scale we'll be using, and then we'll lay out the chords. Now you noticed I went all the way up to the high A, and again the reason why I did this is because most melodies go beyond one octave, so we want to get used to playing these chord forms all the way up beyond one octave. So now let's add the Cdom7 chord forms we'll be using. First on the C, we're using a C7, play each note separately, make sure they're clean. Then the D, Cdom9, either with your 3rd finger bent, or with your 3rd and 4th finger. In succession...

The E note, the 3rd. In succession...F is next, and we simply move the pinky. out. In succession...Up to the G, the 5th, C7. In succession...The A note, the 6th or the 13th, we play a C13. In succession...Now the Bb on the E string, the 7th. Bar on your 2nd or 3rd finger, whichever is more comfortable. In succession…Then up to the high C, C7. In succession...For the D or the 9th, we're going to use this form and put our 3rd finger or pinky. out, whichever is more comfortable for you. In succession...High E note with the 3rd or the 10th. In succession...And for the high F we'll just put our pinky. out. Now the high G, Cdom or the E note. You could use your 2nd finger, or your 3rd finger, whichever is more comfortable. In succession...Then for the high A we're just going to put our pinky. out, which gives us a 13th. So let's go in succession, ascending and then we'll go descending. There you go, the Cdom7 moveable chord forms that we'll be using to play hundreds of chord melodies.
