I'm getting so frustrated with the terrible signal to noise ratio searching for guitar chord websites so thought I'd ask here. I'm looking for something with:

  • lots of different voicings for chords, including jazz voicings
  • well organized/searchable
  • real photos of hands playing them

tips appreciated! thanks!

What problems are you having? There are a large number of chord sites I have seen, and they are all perfectly serviceable, offering inversions, search functions etc. – Dr Mayhem Nov 30 '12 at 16:48
I think your requirement for photos of hands is the sticking point. Very quickly, one learns to translate a chord diagram into fingering, so I don't think anyone is likely to put in the effort to photograph hundreds of chords. It's difficult to see what's going on under the fingers anyway. Diagrams are better. – slim Dec 3 '12 at 15:04


It might not have everything you want, but I took personnal lessons with this guy and I can tell you that everything was always related to his website. This is a fountain of jazz knowledge.

share|improve this answer worked for me in the past, I haven't used it in a while but it was very nice when I did. CHORD-C shows pictures of chords, and you can search chords by putting in the fingerings and it will show you that chord / different voicings.

share|improve this answer is a great one. Justin is a great teacher. Not only he teaches the chords, he explains the theory behind them, and gives examples on how to use the chords and voice leading. The entire website is a great resource for guitarists in general, not just jazz.
