Learning to play jazz guitar means knowing a lot of standards, but with there been so many standards to learn, which ones are played and called most frequently? Which should be we be expected to know at a jam session?

Ever gig and jam session is different, so you need to really know as much tunes as possible to be really prepared, but this article will focus on some the most played tunes. Leave a comment below if you would like to see one of these lists, or if you would like to see a tune study article on a particular standard. Major and Minor Blues The first tune on the list that every jazz guitarist should know is a 12 bar blues.

Like the traditional blues, the jazz blues is most commonly a 12 bar form, but with embellished harmony. Click here to read a lesson I wrote on how you add passing chords to a 12 bar jazz blues progression. The most common keys for the major jazz blues progression are Bb, Eb, C and F. Minor blues tunes are often played in C-, D-, F-, and Eb-, but both sequences should be practiced in all 12 keys.

Rhythm Changes Next to a blues, the rhythm changes is one of the most used progressions in the jazz repertoire. As mentioned in the introduction, this is not really one of the first standards that should be tackled by beginners, but is great to learn if you have a fair amount of standards under your belt and want to push yourself to the next level.

To learn how to solo over this progression, check out this series of articles that I published: Rhythm Changes Soloing Guide. If you would like to expand your comping chops over this progression, check out this article: How to Comp Rhythm Changes.

The video below showcases a great unknown swing and jazz player Dave Biller blowing over the rhythm changes on a black guard Tele. Stella By Starlight Although not quite as harmonically dense as the rhythm changes, Stella by Starlight is rich in harmony with a chord in almost every bar of the progression making it a popular workout for experienced and intermediate jazz guitar players.

The bridge harmony uses juicey extentions such as altered dominant and 11 chords which provide many blowing options for jazz musicians. Check out this version of George Benson burning over Stella.

However, in jazz, learning arpeggios is slightly different than in classical music. Jazz guitar arpeggios are the notes of a chord, played individually without any open strings. By eliminating open strings, the arpeggios become moveable "shapes" that can be used for all 12 keys. This is very useful for outlining chord changes during improvisation. In this article, we will look into arpeggios derived from scale positions. Read on!
