So far we have covered basic chord progressions and haven't strayed to far away from using major and minor chords. But the thing I have always wanted to know is "where do they get some those melodic jazz chord progressions?" I hope to answer this question in this lesson.

For starters, let us continue to look at the key of C. Remember that the chords in order will be Major, Minor, Minor, Major, Major, Minor, Diminished or Minor flat 5.

With that in mind, here are some chord extensions that you can use for starters in building chord progressions:

Let's start by looking at the I. Here you can use the Major, the Major 6th, Major7, Major9 or Sus4.
