In this second tutorial series we are going to learn more about how to play in the style of jazz guitar virtuoso Joe Pass!

This lesson covers playing a dominant 7th chord. The first example is rooted on the E string, a G7; the second is rooted on the A string, a C7.

Again, notice in the score we have two distinct, separate parts: a walking bass line & two higher pitched notes that complete the chord voicing on the upper strings. Jazz players call this "drop 2 voicing".
