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.


What Musicians Are Saying:

“[Jordan] has a beautiful and clear way of explaining and organizing important things related to music, jazz, and guitar. Do yourself a favor and dig into [Melodic Triads].”

Peter Bernstein

“Jordan Klemons is an agile, forward thinking guitarist, fluent in the language of Jim Hall and John Scofield. His solos bristle with intense rhythmic drive and melodic invention.”

Brad Shepik

“After years of studying with many of the jazz legends of our time Jordan has taken all the knowledge he has acquired, reduced it to its essence, and developed it into his own personal system of approaching improvisation. I find his method absolutely refreshing and so much closer to how the great improvisers are thinking and practicing than the traditional chord/scale, university approach to teaching improvisation. It’s given me a whole new and fresh outlook on how to hear things and what to practice”

Tommy Howard

“Technical stuff such as sequences, scale practice, shape systems... there are so many books out there. But I really like that [Jordan] puts it on a much more phenomenological area of expertise, so you get to understand what sound means, emotionally. To me that's much better than all of these books and methods you find all over the internet. This is much more personal and to the core of what music is. [Jordan] really helped me open up a new world, and we're continuing to explore that. I can highly recommend Jordan.”
