    Hi!
    I regularly notice people in need of this or that chord chart, so I found a great pdf file at one of my fav places, Valdez studios. There's a download of a compilation of 557 tunes in pdf, just go to http://valdez.dumarsengraving.com/557JazzStandards.PDF
    and save it on your hd, it covers - like stated ' swing to bop, something for every jazzer...

    Hope you can use it.
    Peace

    Hi Skei,

    It's great to have this site to share our love for Jazz and also share our emotions in life. It"ll give us the strength to carry on.
    Thanks for sharing the PDF site.

    Greetings,
    Bertrand.

    Truer words have not been spoken, Bertrand!
    For sure, this site is like a home away from home. And learning is easy with all these good guitarists around, and important too. Not everyone has the opportunity to go to university or college and learn jazz, which is a pity, growth of new generations of jazzers must continue, which I'm sure it will, as it's such a marvelous music.
    But yeah, we're lucky to have this place, and I certainly love to be here, especially now that I'm noticing that I'm improving radically over the past few weeks or so, maybe just THE last week. It's magic. Just like liquid hydrogen...
    (Joke)
    Peace

    Dear Skei,

    I've been looking for a while for 557, 'cause I've lost my print version. So I'd like to say thank you very much.

    PS: I hope, that I will be able to help you, too.

    This pdf is great! Does anybody know if the actual book can be bought anywhere? I can't seem to find it online. Maybe it goes by another title?(sorry if this question has come up already)

    No idea, Yehoshua, it should be available somewhere, and if under another name, yeah, difficult to find. If you have a printer, print it, but of course, the ink cartridges are almost as expensive as getting the notation. On the other hand, I know there are digital notation stands, you just load a pdf file in it, it seems very neat. When I win on the lottery I shall get me one of those things...
    Peace

    Thank you Skei. This is an important resource for me. I understand your situation. In Italy we say that once you have reached the bottom, you can only bounce...

    This is great. If I get a chance, I’ll try to run an OCR scan on this and make it searchable.
