This is the " Secrets of Exciting Chords & Chord Progressions!" newsletter that you (or someone using your E-mail address) signed up for when you visited our site. Next  you learned how to easily turn major chords into minor chords just by moving one key one-half step -- by lowering the 3rd of the major chord.
That's more than most people learn in their entire life -- and you've learned them in 7 weeks! In case you just discovered this page accidentally and like what you see, sign up for our free newsletter below. TweetSo far in this series we’ve looked at many different chord types such as Diminished, Quartal, Drop 2, Drop 3, and Inner String amongst others but no jazz guitar comping series would feel complete without looking at Johnny Smith closed position voicings.
Along with blistering single lines and clusters, closed-position voicings are closely associated with the jazz guitarist Johnny Smith and are effective tools to use in jazz guitar comping and chord melody arrangements. Closed position voicings are chords that are stacked together in thirds are called closed position because each note is the smallest interval apart that it can be to form the chord. While these voicings are easy to play on piano because of the lay out of the instrument, they are tricky to play on the guitar because most shapes require big left hand stretches. Depending on the size of your left hand not all the shapes from this lesson will feel comfortable enough for you to play. To make the stretches easier I recommend keeping the guitar in classical position and using a strap so that the left hand is in a relaxed position.
A great way to learn these voicings is to practice them in vertical harmonized major scales.

Due to these voicings being hard to grab quickly Johnny Smith mostly used them for chord melody arrangements.
Johnny Smith played ‘Moonlight in Vermont’ in the key of C, so see if you can hear which voicings from the harmonized C major scale he uses. Check out the example below to see you how you can mix close position shapes with ‘easier to grab’ chords in a I-VI-II-V example.

If you no longer want to receive these free weekly E-mail piano lessons, toggle down to the bottom of this E-mail and you'll see where you can take yourself off the list. I hope you are enjoying learning about all the chords in the world -- and we're going to cover them ALL before we're done -- you'll know more about chords than 99% of the people in the world -- believe it or not, it's true. Some people go through their entire lives not being sure about what such and such a major chord is -- and it's all so unnecessary, because you can memorize them in just a few minutes, and learn to play them in 12 seconds or less - one second per chord. Then go through all the 12 minor chords, inverting each one up and down the keyboard -- hands alone, then hands together. Now that we have covered all the triads (3 note chords), we'll take up 6th chords -- they are extensions of the basic major and minor chords.

Due to being stacked this way, close-position voicings have a lush open sound compared to other jazz guitar voicings. I suggest playing through them all and just using the one’s you can play without too much difficulty. I’ve written examples out in two keys so you can see how they look on both string sets.
Every jazz guitarist should listen to his classic arrangement of ‘Moonlight in Vermont’ to hear how these voicings sound when used to harmonize a melody. We take your privacy (and ours) very seriously, so we don't want anyone receiving our stuff who doesn't want it!
I have had many private students over the years who could play them all in as little as 5 seconds -- one little gal (she was about 12 at the time) had particularly fast hands, and could play them in - believe it or not - 3 seconds!  I have slow hands with fat fingers, and yet I can play them in something like 5 or 6 seconds. Then go through all 12 diminished chords, inverting each one up and down the keyboard -- each hand alone, then together. The following diagram shows a close position C major 7th next to a drop 2 voicing so you can see the difference.
