Interactive Jazz Guitar Chord Chart

These are all "Jazzy" sounding chords with root notes in either of the lower 2 strings, and no open chords. Select the group types ("All", "Major", "Minor", etc) on the top of the chart to view only those of a certain type. There's a chart of the root notes below the chord diagrams.

If you can't see all the chords at once on you monitor, try pressing Control and the - keys at the same time (or command and - on a mac), that shrinks the screen on most browsers, and Control and + zooms it back in.

Download this as a Guitar Chord Chart PDF, and hear what these and other chords sound like with The ChordSounder. And if the ones below are too advanced then take a look at my Basic Guitar Chord Chart.

About this guitar chord chart

I've always had a certain fondness for chords that use only the low E and D, G and B strings on the guitar that aren't inverted, meaning that the lowest note is the bass note.

Not only do they sound 'jazzy', but they have a great balance between the bass note and the others that are just plain ol' pleasing to the ear. So I made all these charts on paper, and over the years it grew in to this, kind of a study of intermediate to advanced chords and how they relate to each other.

I have the Guitar Chord Chart PDF printed out and it hangs on my wall so, maybe subliminally, these might soak in even when there's not a guitar in my hands.
