Today I want to talk about a series of jazz chords that move in contraire motion.

The lesson starts off with a brief demonstration of the chords so you can hear what they are going to sound like. Next the chord voicing’s are explained how to play them as follows; the first chord is Bm7 (B minor seven) and is played by baring your first finger across the 7th fret of all six strings and 9th fret of the 5th string with 3rd finger. Next chord is Bbm13 (B flat minor 13) which consists of playing the shape of Bm7 and moving it down one half step and adding your 4th finger to the 8th fret of the 2nd string. Next chord is Am7 (A minor seven) which is simply the same as Bm7, but barring at the 5th fret. And the last chord demonstrated is Ab6/9 (A flat six nine) which consists of barring your first finger across the 4th fret, 6th fret of the 5th string with 3rd finger, 5th fret of the 4th string with 2nd finger and the 6th fret of the 3rd and 2nd strings by barring your 4th finger across both of them.
