The Berklee Jazz Guitar Chord Dictionary is a resource for 7th-chord voicings and other frequently encountered jazz chord shapes on the fretboard. The following diagrams indicate what notes you should use for each chord voicing. These chord blocks will show you the right shapes, but as a musician, you owe it to your audience and yourself to hear the music before you play it. This material will help you to map out the sounds on your fretboard. With time, you will hear the chords before you play them. Strive to play these chords with a solid time feel, a full tone, and attacks with your “picking hand” that match the level of intensity of the music you’re attempting to play. Some tips for getting a good chord sound: • Take special care to play the notes requested—and to leave out, or mute the strings with the x symbol above them. Keep the extra strings out of the sound. • Use the edges of your fingers of your fretting hand to mute unwanted strings. Focus your strumming (or finger-picking attacks) on the indicated strings. Avoid sounding the others. • When strumming across the strings, make the speed of your stroke fast enough to give the illusion of one simultaneous sound made up of all the chord voices. iv • When you’re using your fingers to pluck chords, take care to balance the level of each chord tone. A common tendency is to hit the outermost notes with the most force, resulting in a thinner texture. You’re working to put those notes on the frets; make sure that the listener can hear them! • While forming the chords, make sure that your fingers are as close to the intended frets as possible. • When changing chords, mute the strings by lifting your fingers from the strings, but still touching them, to hold them still as you slide to the next chord. • Make sure all notes ring. If you’re not hearing all the notes clearly, keep working to curve your fingers and adjust your hand position on the intended frets to make the sound shine through your instrument. Playing chords effectively takes time, and the learning process requires practice. There are three common stages of development. • Physical Stamina: Building your hand muscles • Muscle Memory: Memorizing the proper chord-voicing shapes • Informed Musical Instincts: Using these chords to make music v Here are some other things to keep in mind: • While practicing, stay vigilant, playing in time and using a metronome or drum machine. Stay with a musical task until you can make it groove with a strong time feel. • Play with other musicians whenever possible, as often as you can. Practicing by yourself is only part of the overall plan. • Make sure that the chords that you play fit well into your playing situation. Should your voicings contain a lot of notes or a few? Listen to the overall texture, and make a musical decision. • Listen to the originators of the styles that you love. It’s one of the best ways to keep yourself inspired—and to help you to keep the highest musical values in mind. • Listen to great guitarists, but don’t stop there. Focus on performers of other instruments as well. Bring it all together to help you to develop your own unique voice. Keep working, and be patient with yourself. Having the physical strength and the knowledge of the shapes provide means to musical ends. With time, you’ll be able to choose from a variety of options. If you keep at it, you’ll definitely get there! —Rick Peckham

A more comprehensive list is given by stating the aspects of sound: pitch, timbre, loudness, and duration. Common terms used to discuss particular pieces include melody, which is a succession of notes heard as some sort of unit; chord, which is a simultaneity of notes heard as some sort of unit; chord progression, which is a succession of chords (simultaneity succession); harmony, which is the relationship between two or more pitches; counterpoint, which is the simultaneity and organization of different melodies; and rhythm, which is the organization of the durational aspects of music.
