Default I'm going to learn Jazz Chords!!!!

That's what I told myself a couple of years ago.

Got a book, watched a few videos, and dug in. Gave it up real fast. My brain is simply too fried to retain any 'learned' type stuff.

But once my hands got back into shape I started remembering lots of cool ways to play chords and some of them looked complex.

Bought a transcriber and plugged in the chord fingerings of a little progression I'd come up with:

E5
E (b6, no.3)
E7 sus2
Esus (b6)

So I've been playing 'jazz' chords all along but didn't know it. Same goes with Theory.

Got a book and as I'm going through it I'm realizing I already 'know' all the stuff.
All the years off listening and learning **** by ear had already drilled in the knowledge.


Anyway, pretty cool!

That's it Chula! Jazz it up!

Trollheart, Jazz's number one enemy. Wanted, syncopated or alive in sixteen territories for crimes against rhythm and coolness. Do NOT approach this man: he is armed with Bon Jovi records and WILL use them. Contact your local JED (Jazz Enforcement Division) officer instead.
