Overview

The Mel Bay book Jazz Chords for Rock Guitarists, by John G. Maione, takes the mystery out of jazz harmonies and makes them accessible all guitarists. More importantly, Jazz Chords for Rock Guitarists is a book that logically, progressively, and practically builds on a rock guitarist's knowledge, and leads them step-by-step, to learning and understanding the basic elements of jazz harmony. You'll also learn how to use functional jazz guitar chord forms in your playing.

The transition from rock to jazz can sometimes be a bit intimidating to guitarists, young and old. Beginning with a review of basic power and "bar" chords, this jazz chord book then proceeds to begin bridging the gap to jazz by working on basic blues progressions. Usually these are familiar to all rock guitarists, but here they're presented using basic jazz chord voicings and forms. You can build upon these newly discovered jazz forms learned through the blues by learning many more related jazz chord forms and voicings, all built on the 6th string and 5th string roots, the roots of learning rock guitar! Jazz Chords for Rock Guitarists is geared, through logical, step-by-step progression, and clear explanations, for any rock guitarist ready and eager to explore the exciting and unlimited world of jazz!
