In this jazz rhythm guitar lesson Jon MacLennan teaches an exercise to work on jazz voicings on the lower strings of the guitar. Jon starts off in the key of F at the first fret and ascends up the fret board diatonically through all of the chords in the scale. The chord voicing’s that Jon demonstrates are as follows; FM7 (F major seven), Gm7 (G minor seven), Am7 (A minor seven), BbM7 (B flat major seven), C7, Dm7 (D minor seven), Em7b5 (E minor seven flat five), and finally FM7 again, but one octave higher. To get the most benefit from this exercise it is recommended to practice it both ascending and descending. Guitar TAB’s are available for this easy jazz guitar lesson at GuitarControl.com.
