CHORDSHAPES ESSENTIAL JAZZ BLUES CHORDS
The following 17 chord shapes are used almost exclusively in this performance by Tim, and are a fantastic resource for anyone in (or venturing into) the jazzblues genre. Note that these are presented with the roots in black (and the other intervals labelled). So long as you know the notes on the fifth and sixth strings you can play any of these great chord shapes in any key. Some of these chords are inverted, and do not contain a root, and for these I’ve indicated in blue where the implied root can be found to help you locate the correct position – but they are not intended to be played (and in some cases are impossible).
