How To Really Explore The Fretboard with Jazz Chords

The best way to learn the fretboard is to work on the things that you need when you play and get an overview of what you use! Fretboard memorization should not be empty knowledge, it is something you build and connect to the things that you use.

This video will give you an introduction to some of the exercises with chords that can help you learn the fretboard in a practical way and while also expanding your chord vocabulary.
