Best exercise for jazz guitar chord solos! - Brain and fingers!


Published on 23 November 2021
Chord solos have been a part of the Jazz Guitar skill set since the 50's and 60's when players like Joe Pass and Wes Montgomery used it in their music. A Chord solo is a harmonized melody line, so you don't only improvise a melody, you also harmonize it by adding chords to it. This might seem a little scary to start working on, but if what you want to work on is harmonising melodies. One of the simplest melodies you can harmonize is a scale, so in this lesson I will take an F major scale and show you how you can harmonize it with both some chords and some progressions.
