Commonly referred to as "jazz" chords. The Advanced Guide to Guitar Chords Series provides detailed information on voicing 4-part chords.
Beyond learning open and barre chords, most guitarists struggle with advanced chords. Commonly called jazz chords, these more sophisticated voicings find a wide use in all forms of music.
(A review of The Advanced Guide to Guitar Chords Vol.1 by Lyle Robinson of JazzGuitarLife) ...When I received this instructional book for review my first question was, “where was Curt Sheller when I needed him twenty years ago?” If I had access to this book early on I would have most likely progressed quicker than I did, especially when faced with a lead sheet from a fake book with all those “weird” chord names and alterations.
Sheller’s “The Advanced Guide to Guitar Chords Vol.1” provides the beginner and intermediate jazz guitar player with the most common and great sounding chord voicings of all the major, minor, dominant, augmented and diminished chords plus their alterations: 9, 11, and 13ths. As well, he discusses the sus, add, and slash theory of such chord formations.
This is a text that is beautifully laid out and very easy to work through. What little chord theory there is throughout the book is clearly explained and doesn’t bog the student down with too much theoretical discourse. The chord diagrams are clearly defined and there is no confusion about where fingers should be placed. This is definitely a book that you can begin utilizing in a practical playing situation almost immediately. And it’s great for teachers to get their beginning Jazz guitar students to start hearing and playing those wonderful voicings that excited us all early on in our development as Jazz guitar players.
“The Advanced Guide to Guitar Chords Vol.1” is a great beginning for any aspiring Jazz guitarist and I can't wait to check out Volumes two and three.
Thank you Lyle Robinson
