Jazz Chords in the Style of Barney Kessel - Jazz Guitar Lesson


Barney Kessel, the chord master, man.
That guy was so good and this is a way
that he will move through a II V I just
sort of that style that I’ve picked up from
him, actually from a song called “Misty”.

We’re starting up, the basic chords are C minor 7;
F7, B flat major 7, but check-out what he does with it.
Again, click the link below for the tab for this,
but I’m starting on the 12th fret, 10,
10 for like — basically I’m thinking
a C minor 9 chord. And then we have
the minor 9th and just moving down chromatically
like this to finally a C minor triad. Minor 7,
and then this is like an F13 flat 9 chord.
And then F7 flat 9, like diminished sounds.
And then this is a B flat major 9, sort of sound 13 chord.
And then B flat 6-9; B flat major 7; and then a sharp 11.

So here it is again, slowly. So good. Again, slowly.
A real nice way. Barney Kessel lesson there.
So listen to his song “Misty”, one of his
arrangements on it, and we’ll see you in the next lesson.
Thanks for watching.
