JA-023 • Dominant Type Jazz Chord Extensions

The Jazz Guitar Lessons

So now it is time to start looking at the chords that you can substitute for a Dominant 7th chord.

It's really important that you check out some Jazz Standards and try out using these new chords. Just try them out one at a time and let your ear guide you to which ones sound good.

I have not included chord boxes because I think you would be better off making up your own chord book - just use the blank chord paper in the Blank Paper area, and fill in the chord boxes yourself while you watch the video.

Of course there are many more chords than these shown in this vid, many of which I will be using in later lessons when we explore II-V-I chord sequences and look more at advanced substitution ideas.
