In Chords For Life you will find no drop chord voicings, no tabbed out chord scales to help you explore diatonic key signatures, and no carpal-tunnel inducing "complex-for-the-sake-of-complex" chord shapes. Instead... we will focus on the basics. How to think about the art form of comping, what it really is all about, what the fundamentals are, and how you can start PRACTICING those fundamentals to begin getting unglued from the real book changes and having fun.
Together, we will help you learn your basic shell voicings and the four types of traditional chord movement that will let you creatively and spontaneously create new harmonic pathways through your favorite jazz standards. Bonus lessons will walk you through even more advanced ideas for developing solo guitar, trio playing, chord melody, and complex pianistic harmony using the melodic triads approach.
