@hammill444 there are a vast amount of jazz lessons from her (and a few other teachers) on jamplay, and they have tabs for everything. I used to be a member of that site but I got what I needed (I got good!) and I stopped my subscription. I highly recommend the site though. I there’s a 7 day free trial.

I hear you! Drop me a PM or I will drop one to you. I can try to give a few tips on how to go about all this. Thing about jazz is, even the ‘easy jazz’ is not too easy. Most people starts with the basic folk chords… 1 4 5 progression etc…. From there it is a bit of a leap when you start to intro 7s 9s 11s #s and b’s etc.

I think it can make sense to most, but the order of how info is presented is crucial. Any ‘missed’ steps leads to great confusion. Shapes are the key

@gtrrobster Yes, I tried that, but could not quite find specific ones to correspond to both the 7th’s and 9th’s— and all the alternate chords up the neck– presented in this lesson. I only stopped by because someone else stated this was a simple, good lesson for beginners, and I was hoping to find someone to de mystify jazz chords. But I guess there is, it would seem, a level well below beginner. Back to the three chord garage.

To be honest, you need to do a little homework on your own. Easy to google ‘jazz chord formations’… Do that, be prepared with the foundations, and use this great info to help you know how to use that information. This is not a lesson for total beginners in jazz.

Meant with respect!

Very good. Simple to understood. Great musician, and she had a sweet and generous way to expose your lesson.

@md1053 Well, I guess in a way, that’s right: I was very interested in this lesson. But what is frustrating is to have to go find another lesson somewhere else that serves to explain the chords– and how to actually play them—presented in this lesson. Yes, of course they are the same chords, in different positions; what I wanted to know is how to form the different chords presented— in particular the jazz barre chords being presented. So yes, I did indeed want to have a lesson in jazz.

@hammill444 all same chords, in different positions, dominant or called with their name when altered with 9th etc.. your disappointment may come from the fact that’ you want to have a lesson in jazz and you don’t know how to build a basic 7th chord

Well, for a lesson in jazz— it is so frustrating to not have the teacher explain how to form the actual jazz chords– via the fret and string positions– within the lesson. Yes, I can see her form the chords— but it’s not nearly enough. Like I said: frustrating, and ultimately unhelpful.

Hello Jamplay, hopfully you guys can answer this question. I’ve been looking around and thinking about joining your website. I’ve been orientating and couldn’t find Jane Miller on your website list of teachers. Does she still teach on your website and are her lessons still availible?

Jane, you are a sweetheart of a teacher. God bless you!

@safenders There’s a lot more lessons from here for JamPlay.com members.

Written By JamPlayDotCom on March 8th, 2012 @ 5:40 am

One of the best lessons so far. Teaching harmony should be like this. Not memorizing senseless modes…
