Learn the simple-to-play bar chord formulas that create the cool jazz sound used in all the familiar old broadway tunes and jazz standards.

They are not difficult to play but they are different than the simple ukulele chords used in folk, rock and Hawaiian music. You will learn that there are simple jazz-chord combinations that are repeatedly used when playing jazz standards. Once you learn the method of how the chords are combined you will be able to play many standards more easily with chords that sound jazzy.
The chord progressions studied in this book fit with standards like Autumn Leaves, Fly Me to the Moon, Mac the Knife, LOVE, and Left My Heart in San Francisco and Love Letters.
