Jazz Intro

Difficulty: Advanced | Guitar used: Fender Telecaster | Tuning: Standard

I’ve written a short jazz piece that resolves into an Bbm7 chord, so could be used as an intro to a song in the key of Bb. Even if you have no interest in Jazz music this example may teach you some new chord voicings or melodic ideas to use in your own songs. The piece is played slowly so you have time to concentrate on some of the tricky chord shapes.
