Jazz for Rock Guitarists - Kernel Chords

Hello. 

This is Jon Griffin, and I am here today to talk about a concept that most rock guitars probably won't know about.  If you've studied a lot of jazz you may be familiar.  But they're called kernel chords.  At least that's the way I was taught.  They're very simple.  They're just chords with the root, the third, and the seventh of minor, major, or dominant.

When You Wish Upon a Star

I worked this little guitar arrangement of When You Wish Upon a Star for my friends son a few years ago. It's not too difficult if you have some experience, but there are a few stretches and techniques you may need to practice.
