What Are Gypsy Jazz Chords?
Many of the chords found in the gypsy jazz guitar style are very indicative of the genre, both in sound and fingering. For example, it is common for major and minor chords to have notes such as the 9th and 6th included in the chord voicing. It is also common for many gypsy jazz chords to be played in ‘thumb position,’ whereby the thumb of the fretting hand grabs the bass note of the chord. Of course, many players prefer to play straight triads, and these voicings are also included in the Gypsy Jazz Chord Book.
