How to Play Jazz Guitar Chords
Developing a strong comping and chord vocabulary and learning how to play jazz guitar chords is just as important as learning licks and scales. But with there been so many chords and comping techniques, knowing how to study them effectively can be tough.
With many books simply just being a thesaurus of chords with little to no application or explanation, it leaves most guitarists confused, resulting in them forgetting half of the chords learnt on the first page by the time they get half way through the book.

The goal of this project is to not only provide 30 days of material to practice, but give you hours, months, and years worth of practice to open your minds to chords and comping techniques on the instrument.
Some of these exercises will be tricky to do, like the charleston rhthm etudes, but dont let that get you down. The tougher things to work on are usually the most benefitial. Stick with it and it will pay off in the long run.
