Watch the Take 5: Jazz Chord Colors online guitar lesson by Frank Vignola from Take 5: Jazz Chord Colors

Hi, I'm Frank Vignola. Welcome to this Jazz Chord Colors edition of Take 5!

Knowing how to color your chords behind a vocalist or soloist is an essential skill for any jazz guitarist. In fact, your job in the rhythm section is to be responsible for the harmony and to color your chords, feeding the soloist with juicy sounding chords and harmonic ideas that they can improvise over.

We start the course with a chord coloring primer where I will pass on a vocabulary of the most useful jazz chord extensions, voicings, and fingerings. I'll show you several ways to play any major, minor, or dominant chord that you will encounter in the jazz songbook, working with 7ths, 9ths, 6ths, flat 9's, 13ths, flat 13's, and 6/9's. In fact, these are the very chords that I use 90% of the time when performing or recording in any setting.

I'll then guide you through five jazz chord colors performance studies from basic to more sophisticated and challenging approaches. All of the studies are tabbed and notated and you'll have the jam tracks to work with on your own. You can loop and slow down the videos so you can work with the lessons at your own pace.
