Music Theory: Altered Chords - Part One Andrew Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio answers a viewers question... Q: I am a student of jazz guitar. Recently, I have been working hard to learn jazz standards from the 5th Edition of the Real Book. My current challenge is to expand upon my knowledge of extensions on seventh chords to include the various altered chords. Can you please do a video covering some of the most common altered chords on guitar, how to think of them, and how to apply them smoothly in jazz standards. Thanks! Darryl London, England Altered chords are excellent chords to have a solid understanding about when youre playing jazz music. Unfortunately, many times the application of altered chord voicings can be pretty confusing for students so I think that a really appropriate way to cover this topic will be a two part video lesson. The complete lesson article for this video is available on the Creative Guitar Studio website.
