Incorporate jazz harmony in your guitar playing

Jazz harmony is the theory and practice of chord usage in jazz music. This instructional video demonstrates the basics of jazz harmony and incorporates licks and runs on the electric guitar. Once you've mastered the basic chord progression you'll be able to improvise and further develop your sound. The chord movement known as the "two," "five," "one," is by far the most popular jazz chord movement. Most of the jazz standards contain this cycle of chords. It's popularity is on the same level as the 12-Bar Blues set of chord changes. To fully understand this concept you must develop a firm grasp of the notes found in each chord and how they operate reflecting the strength of the resolution from the "two," to the, "four," and finally to the home chord (the "one").
