By studying and practicing this chord system the student will become intimately familiar with the fretboard and the overall structure of chords as well as the interval positions within the chord.
The student is then able to use this information to learn more complex chord structures. So rather than just memorizing 100's of random chord forms the student simply learns the differences between the chord types allowing for those differences to be the focus of memorization rather than random chord forms.
Author Ryan Belisle has been studying, teaching, and playing jazz guitar for over 15 years. Overwhelmingly one of the most asked questions from his private lesson students has been "How do I play this chord?"
Ryan quickly realized that there was a need for a chord system that allowed students of all ages and playing abilities to learn the theory behind the chords they desired to play. After years of teaching and refining his system, it is finally here!
If your goal is to expand your knowledge of the fretboard and chord structures in order to establish the framework necessary to sight read chord charts, play colorful inversions, and substitute common chord progressions then you need to study the "Jazz Guitar Chord System."
"Ryan, I've been playing guitar for 10+ years, spent to much money on chord books and videos that didn't deliver. In just two weeks I've already learned more and can't wait to practice... Brilliant!"
- Larry Miller
"Every time I look at your book, I get excited. The format and font are perfect. The pages are not cluttered, and the right amount is covered per page. The diagrams are a nice size, easy to read, and I love the red roots. Thank you, I'm so glad you did this."

"I just got your book and I already love it. It was good and easy to follow and I wish I had my guitar with me now so I could practice. It was easy to read and all the diagrams made it easy to figure out what you're saying... good job bro."
- Brian Powell
"I just got your book and already have learned so much. The idea is so simple I can't believe I didn't think of this. This is the easiest way to learn chords that I've found."
- Kourtney Taylor
"Never been easier or clearer how to learn so many different chords. I used to see certain chords and run for the chord books, now I just decide what string I want to play the root on and my chord form is already chosen for me... It works."
- Jordan Santos
Simple and Clear!! I didn't have an extensive grasp of music theory but I had no problem following and understanding these concepts. I love the large fretboard diagrams, they look great! Tons of information, that is well organized. A must for any serious guitarist!!
- Jonah Archuleta
Great Reference. I'd definitely recommend this book for any level player who wants to expand their knowledge of chords and chord structures. Begins with fretboard basics and works up to more complex concepts. It is much easier to learn chords when you understand the differences between them. Great System!
