Jazz Chords Using the Thumb - Jazz Guitar Lesson


Here we go. One, two, and then we’re going to move up to A minor 7, which I play all on the 5th fret, 1st with my thumb and then 5, 5, 5. Move that up a whole step, A minor 7. Drop it down a half step to E flat minor 7; another
half step, A minor 7 and then another half step here. I’m playing 4, 4, 5, 3; A flat 7 flat 5. Resolving to G major 7. If you want, you can grab that high note on the 1st string. Or you can play them in quarters like.

So click the link for the tabs so you can get those shapes and then practice moving that around to different keys. If you do it in A you’ve got… Real nice jazz sound using the thumb and sort of just developing this muscle.
