I play hybrid pick so what I do is I use my pick between my thumb and forefinger like normal and I use my middle ring and pinky to play the D G and B string that's how I play jazz

guitar

the pros I always have my pick ready when i play melodies or solos of course you can choose to play with the index finger of your thumb the middle finger and the ring finger are not used to the little finger so ok that's possible too ok so let's focus on the left hand ok ok i play the first phrase three four one is ok i have my index finger on the 8th fret of the B string then the 10th fret with my ring finger on the 11th fret and then I switch to the E string on the 11th fret it all starts on two so every first sentence starts and every other sentence starts on one end this starts on two so we have one two three four one two and then we always have the chords and those chords here are C minor 7 which is in the fret 8.

The cue rda E with the middle finger and ring finger cross the D G and B strings and a middle finger is more convex and you put it across your ring finger it's ok don't put this side because if you put it to the left you end up somewhere off the frets and next to the 7th fret, okay, so this is C minor 7, then you rest your hand on the strings again, don't do this or just do this fun stuff if your finger digs in your thumb and goes to the strings, so you got something going ok it can also be quiet if you want it to be a ballad ok then just don't push it so hard ok soft or practice on first ok and then we have an F 9 chord which just slide everything down and the string d f-- d has the index finger on the same fret so we have 8 to 78 and 8 is a bar here ok so go from here to here and we have the same rhythm throughout the whole song it's always right so 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 and that's right the next Next sentence we stay here, but we go to the next note in the key of G minor, which is F, it starts on the tenth fret. from G string G ok temp g8b 10th B turn to e on the 10th fret this starts with excuse me on ah one and one and three four one two a d so we have our courts again one and three four one two three four the courts our yes flat major seven and E flat major seven the B flat major seven is on the sixth fret obviously here we have a B flat then seven three seven string the D string 7th fret D string Ok getting confused here little finger goes on the 7th of G and your middle finger on the 6th of the bee then you will rest it again then switch to E flat major this is 6 to 8 d 7 g & 8 ok first try switching those two then ok the first two phrases 1 2 3 4 1 ok 3rd phrase starts again on count number 2 and now i would change my pattern i go from here to here because just stay where i am this is where i was and now i put my ring finger on the 8th fret of G so AG 6 p8 b and 8e ok and then we have courts again they are always a little hard at first if you've never played them before that's all half diminished 2t seven flat nine I couldn't make them easier because those are the chords of the song for you to learn those half diminished is highly recommended thumb this because it's a lot easier to switch to d7 flat nine then it's ok for you to get used to that I have a very small thumb so if I can do it if you can do it I'm pretty sure you don't have to go like that just play it a little bit and that's a fifth fret right, the E string, then your middle finger goes to the D string, fifth finger, fifth and index finger is on the fourth. of the B which is a half diminished eight is fine and now we change it when we have our remainder and we change it to D seven flat nine and that's not so bad now because all we have to do is put our thumb up middle finger up one string to the a string and the index slides up to the D string like a barre chord so what we get now is five to 4 D 5 g and still four from B because we have the bar here five four five four please no Worry like that, okay, that's corny, okay, okay, so sentence and a fourth sentence, then I'll repeat everything. swipe up two with your ring finger ok don't drop everything don't lift everything just leave it as it is and swipe up seven v b7 b 6e this starts at the 1 and again I think 1 G - 7 - g7 sharp 5 G minor 7 is the same as the C - 7 we learned in the first bar solo on the 3rd fret 3rd e 3 3 3 and then move on to g7 our sharp five or g7 flat 13 you might want to call this - this is a third with index third with middle finger fourth and forward is ok that's an altered chord in some books it's not written like that but most of Jessa's plates are like that because it's a five chord that wants to go back to the C chord - C minor chord when we repeat the e part ok it gives us a little more tension and then resolves into a chord which is what we want in jazz ok the last phrase was ok all four phrases all one whole one part one one part one two three four one is ok for part two is basically the same as l to first part with slight variations in D rhythmic structure and at the end we have two bars of G minor 7 ok let's start it starts absolutely the same as the first one and now we have a variation so instead of just a check we play all the B flat chord once and then for the second beat I just play the high notes, middle, ring and pinky fingers, I don't play the bass anymore so we have one and then there's a silence, there's none, what I'm sorry it's three and four and then we have E flat major seven okay so before that's okay then same as before now we have a slight rhythmic variation one two and okay in the first part eight we had three four one now we want to syncopate it a bit more so it gets a little bit busier ok the notes are exactly the same as sentence number three we're done yeah and now we've got the courts the same as before half diminished go to D seven one nine okay, all three are u a phrase number four difference now because we go up here it's okay from here so there's a fly here from the fifth fret E string to eight to six to eight B strings and now we have to do two G minor guys and we don't want to play like this that what we do is zoom in chromatically, oh you didn't see that, sorry we zoom in chromatically.

Get closer to G minor F sharp minor that's the chromatic approach against Ujima alright alright and then what falls is the pickup for part B so play the full part two for you two three four one yippee alright , you got it Now, let's get to part B. Part B is a little more difficult. In fact, it uses the same chords, but it has some chromatic stuff, but it shouldn't be hot. I will be thankful. Still ok let's start the pickup to part B one two three four one two ok we start at the end two so this is one two we start on the B string at the 8th fret going to the 7th back to the 8th to the 10 and then we switch to the g string seven and back to the B string ten one and two is ok one more time one two is ok on the cut sheet now it says a half decrease to d7 whatever that is altered so what I'm doing I don't want to go into too much detail because that's a lot of steel for a theory behind this ummm I'm aiming for this court which is actually a diminishing chord substituting for the D seven flat nine chord okay here it is the DN the tenth fret of the E string and we play this chord nine to tenth D 8g and tenth of the B string which is a sharp diminished chord F which stands for d7 flat nine and we chromatically move closer to it instead of halfway decrease decrease chromatically we approach s to that chord d7 flat nine playing it with the chord flat seven flat nine is fine so just start one fret below eight nine seven nine and then go up ok full phrases can jerk off on the first one for two first notes okay one two a good trick is to stay here move one to the left and here you go wrap the other fingers okay so we start from this finger where we are where we are actually that's B string in the tenth fret so we have e ten eight so I actually switch to the ring finger because otherwise I would have to jump with my little finger all the time ten again and eleven and it's actually up to the eleventh in a melody that we want to do is to play the second as a chord, since this cuts the G minor 7 chord, but we want to approach it chromatically again, okay, so what we're going to do is make it sound like this, okay, one more time, okay, we've already done this , now we play a G - seven this is played as a barre chord actually a 10 eight-ten in G + 8 per bar which has a bar chord here again 8 10 8 10 8 just the middle 4 strings ok no we play the e strings play it like this if you have longer fingers than me or if you have short fingers just hi you can borrow it but don't play the E string damn I'm going to the F sharp minor 7 chord which is on the bar of the 9th fret and the ring finger goes on the 10th of the D and the middle finger goes on the 11th, sorry, and the middle finger goes on the 10th of the B string, so that's a regular F sharp minor chord 7 and then that's a chromatic focus of G - seven a half step above, ok, so step from G minor 7 F sharp minor 7 - G - 7 boom, check, ok, the whole phrase, ok, the first two phrases from part B one and two, okay, we start where we left off on the middle finger, the next phrase, ok, remove it or not, if you don't like it, from 11 to 10 on the B string, 11 again. nte, 13 and we have cuts again. 7 to f9 is the same as we started in part a1 ok 8 8 8 8 & 9 8 7 8 8 ok the first three sentences in part B 1 2 ok the third sentence starts on the 10-strand g string ok g -string to tell Fred the 13th fret of the E string and the 11th fret of the E string and the 10th fret of the E string while it's all going a FRA start day one and three for one oops let's go to B flat major seven we have this before six seven seven six and what I'm doing now is splitting the strings.

I start with the base, just okay, this one and then I touch my middle ring and my pinky fin. ger twice I do D and then I go to E flat major and play all right hello hello hello all the E flat major that we already had - so that was six eight eight seven eight okay the whole phrase okay first full phrases of B part one, two, okay, phrase number five, we jump from here with the middle finger to the tenth fret of the E string. I play for you once. I'd rather go up to the 9th then take the chance again now I glide but you don't actually hear the glide until the 11th fret and a half diminished plan there's a lot of half diminished chords now ok you go over the 10th fret with your index , middle fingers on the 11 and your ring finger is on the G string on the 12 so we have 10 12 10 11 so a half is like this but higher ok you played twice and it changed one to another. a diminished half here is the a on the seventh of the D string and we have 8 8 8 you play twice 2 so we have these two twos that are faster and then I move on to a d7 flat 9 chord which is a here we have a chord diminished again substituting the d7 flat 9 this is a G string for a 5 string B string 4 and E string 5 is fine all the phrases and then you wait quite a while on one two three four and what you do then slide one two three oh six frets all the way to the 10th to 11th fret with the same shape because this is still a d7 flat nine chords Diminished chords are built symmetrically so they repeat every three cores. three same chord so going from here six up is the same chord ok one more time two three four and the last part of this song is G minor 7 this is a 10th bar chord fret here's G then we have to go to the 12 on D 10 because of the bar 11 on the beat and 10 here this time we are We're not going to play the inner four strings but we play the bass of course the A string and then all three strings up.
We play the G with the middle finger. Here, the B and the pinky touches the E. It's okay or if you want to touch. fingers only then it's no pinky no matter how you should get this cut this is the highest note ok this is not right you count to two one two chromatically low one half step one two three four another one to F minor and now you play all the strings the ones we played before and now just the high strings middle ring and little finger no base on the second beep okay one twothree four one and the rest change to B flat seven which is a B flat on the six of E 6th of D and the 7th of G and you just play those three so there's no pinkie involved here and then I add the 13th of that string which is on the Y on the 8th fret of the b string I play that with my pick or you could also play it with your pinky but I prefer the pig sounds a little louder louder is ok so we have and you just turn your finger towards the string E, you stay here and we have an E flat 13 chord, so the quadruple sheet would say E flat major seven plus.
Jazz don't do that because we want to get more attention again. This is a sub five. Try saying a substitute. If you don't know what it is, forget it. in D seven and eventually eventually results in G minor ok that's why we don't play a boring swell we play E flat dominant ok we're at one fifth of these strings six of G 6 of B this is a bar and then pinky plays the eighth of the E string ok comes from this a flat 9 chord so we have a port E flat 9 13 ok just keep it up to 3 and o four one two three and then you go to the sixth fret of the E string yeah one two three and the last few courts which is a d7 flat nine again we already had this four five four five in the height for Strings ok we go from here ok from here you hit a high string again I played with my Pig then the 6th fret with the 3rd fret of the B string ok just slide over there and then I stay there Freddie change it r all three wait for the last chord ok this is going to be a G minor no seven there three three three and I'm afraid the third of the E string with my thumb, so I have or those three strings and the bass can also arpeggiate take the last phrase now ok i play the whole B part for you now in slow motion 1 and 2 ok then i hope this little
