Diminished as a 7b9 Chord – How To Play Jazz Guitar Lesson [JA-029]


In this guitar lesson we look at the jazz theory concept of using a diminished chord as a 7b9 chord. You should probably check out the jazz lesson series on the web site if you are getting stuck with the concepts here – and there are notes about this lesson there too – and I think it is easier to read some of this stuff than listen – helps you understand it faster, imho.

It’s kind of a chord substitution (you’ll often see it called that) but I think it is more just using a shape a different way, it’s not really a substitution in the proper sense of the word… more on the web site about that!
