Learning Some Jazz Chords

I’ve started trying to learn some jazz.  So here are a few jazz guitar chords that I have been working on this week.  Of course, the first major chord is not just a “jazz” chord, but is widely used, but for a basic major chord with a 6th string root, it seems to be about the only option.  I will post some more next week, assuming I survive this sinus infection that decided to make my head its home for the time being.  For now I am concentrating on chords with a root note on the 6th string (low E) on the guitar.  The legend below the chord diagram provides the interval for note on each string, such as R for root, p5 for Perfect 5th, etc.

What are some of your most useful jazzy chords?

Also, I need to emphasize that I am not a jazz musician….only that I find it fascinating and it is an awesome way to learn chord theory.  I think to be a true jazz cat you need to give it full time study and my interest lies in too many other areas and I just don’t have time to devote full time effort.
