Nice Chords - E, A6 and B7+M6

Here are some great sounding blues jazz chords you can play

 

Blues Jazz Chords E A6 and B7+M6th

Nice Chords off the E Major Scale

Here are more nice chords - but I've expanded on the I, IV and V chords above by adding the ii, iii, vi and vii chords so you can play chords off the entire E Major Scale.

I put this photo up on the Free Jam Tracks Facebook page and said if the post gets 20 likes or some comments requesting a video of me playing through these chords then I'll make a video to go with the guitar tab below as well. Otherwise you can just work it all out from the guitar tab below. It's not hard, you just need to get your fingers around the chord shapes.

Very Nice Blues Jazz chords off the E Major Scale

Stunt Guitar

This is me stuffing around with finger tapping. You can see what I'm doing in the video, especially at the start where I'm just playing a two-note tapping pattern using my right hand at the 12th fret of the B/2nd string.

I'm playing notes from an E Major scale. When I go into the three-note tapping part I'm just using notes from the triads of the I, IV and V chords. i.e. I'm using the Root, 3rd and 5th notes of the chords E, A and B.

You don't need (or want!!) to know the notes I'm playing here - try it yourself. Put a bit of distortion and reverb on your amp/guitar/effect unit and play around using the notes that make up any chord you like. You can use scale notes as well - try it - it's fun.

 

Blues Guitar Lesson 1 Part 1

This is real simple stuff. I just did these two videos so there is a lesson on Free Jam Tracks that will get someone who has never played the guitar playing something fun straight away.

If you want me to do more lessons then go to the Free Jam Tracks page and ask me there. Otherwise you can probably find anything you're looking for already done on YouTube. The best way to learn is to get lessons of others. You will always be able to find someone who is a better player than you. Get lessons of them. Or a lesson. It all helps.

 

Blues Guitar Tab E5 and E6 Chords

Blues Guitar Lesson 1 Part 2

Use the E Blues Scale shown here to play with the E5 - E6 blues chord progression shown in Lesson 1 Part 1. In this video I play the notes shown on the guitar tab you can see in the photo below and at the end play a little bit accompanying myself using the E5 - E6 progression I showed you in Lesson 1.

For You I Will Wait

Jam track in the key of E.

mp3: For You I Will Wait
wma: For You I Will Wait

Click the above links to play the jam track and right click to download.

Date recorded: December 8th 2013.
Time/size: 5 mins/6.8MB. 90 beats per minute/bpm.
Instruments: Piano, fretless bass, and programmed drums.
Progression: E x 4, A x 2, E x 2 , B x 1, A x 1 , E x 1, B x 1.
Suggestions: Play the E Major scale over the jam tack like I did in the video below and see where you can take it.

 

The main scale I'm using in the video is the E Major scale. Mostly using this pattern but I'm moving below and up the strings outside of this pattern as well.

E-------------------9--11--12--
B--------9--10--12-------------
G-9--11------------------------
D------------------------------
A------------------------------
E------------------------------

I'm also playing the E Major Pentatonic scale from the 7th fret of the A string up to the E on the 9th fret of the G string. Then I'm going into the full E Major scale patter used above.

E---------------------
B---------------------
G------------------9--
D-----------9--11-----
A-7--9--11------------
E---------------------

In the parts I'm starting down at the nut with the open E string, I'm playing an E Major Pentatonic scala and then moving into the E Major scale as I get to the 2nd and 1st strings.

E----------------------------------------4--5--7--
B-------------------------------4--5--7-----------
G-------------------------4--6--------------------
D----------------2--4--6--------------------------
A----------2--4-----------------------------------
E-0--2--4-----------------------------------------

I'm focusing on landing on the Root or 3rd or 5th note of each of the chords, E, A and B. Moving around those triad tones but sticking fairly close to them so it sounds reasonably nice. Not too jazzy, sticking mostly to simple notes that are easy on the ear.

Guitar Improvisation In The Key Of E

This is the kind of stuff I play on guitar. Just nice chords and sounds. I'm just trying to work out how to use video so I can start putting up some lessons and clips of me recording the jam tracks. Just so you can see how I make the music that I put on this website.

 

Jinhee Let's Go Out

Ahn Yeong. The tracks Jinhee Let's Go Out consist of the track with me playing lead guitar over them and then the backing track. On the track with lead the lead guitar comes in after the first 12 bars around the 30 second mark.

Date recorded: November 24th 2013.
Time/size: 4 mins 16 secs/5.8MB. 106 beats per minute/bpm.
Instruments: Hammond (piano sound), acoustic and electric guitars, bass and programmed drums.
Progression: C x 4, F x 2, C x 2 , G x 1, F x 1, C x 2, G x 1.
Suggestions: I'm using the C Major scale on the track with the lead guitar. I set up a simple theme based around the arpegiated notes of each of the three chords and tried to come up with some melodic lines around that. And like always, I'm just basically having some fun on guitar.

Tom's Cuban Guitar Crisis

This jam track is for Tom in Cuba. Just remember, all problems in the world can be solved with a guitar, but it won't pay the rent.

Suggestions: Play the B blues scale or B Mixolydian scale over this progression. The blues scale sounds cool and the Mixolydian scale will give you a few different notes to mess with your ears.
