[quote=LickLibrary Levi;111203]Yeah, get the rhythm one. The chords and shapes on isn't part of the same set, but is another good DVD on chords. Think of it as my Chord Encyclopedia the lite edition.
You made the age old mistake of going to jazz lead before rhythm. Jazz is all about harmony, especially on the guitar (we're primarily a rhythm instrument in jazz) and in order to be able to solo over progressions, you need to understand the harmony on a deep level.
Dm7 - G7 - Cmaj7 is less likely to happen than Dm11 - Db7#5#9 - Cmaj9#11
for all intents and purposes though... they're the same thing - both ii-V-Is in C but with extensions and a tritone sub
so in summary
harmony harmony harmony!
More seriously though - enjoy the ride! It's such a rich genre with so much to do, and one of the few where you feel like you're soloing when playing rhythm parts! How's THAT for self indulgence? haha
Indeed Levi l should have started with rhythm... like you say it's all about harmony.. now I know that I certainly will enjoy the ride!!!..
Thanks for your help and advice...
