30 Days to Better Jazz Guitar will lead you through each lesson in a progressive pathway, with three levels of difficulty for each day’s lesson.

After completing one pathway, you can return to the start of the eBook and work your way through the next level of exercises.

All for less than the price of a single half-hour Jazz guitar lesson.

Reach Your Maximum Jazz Guitar Potential


The hardest part about teaching guitar is when a new student says:


I don’t believe I can ever play Jazz guitar.




The best part about teaching guitar is when we work together, and a few months later that same student says:


Wow, I never thought I’d be able to play Jazz guitar, but I’m doing it!


With 30 Days to Better Jazz Guitar, you too will experience that kind of growth in your playing.


If you’re ready to take your playing to the next level, this eBook will help you achieve your maximum Jazz guitar potential.

  1. Ken, September 5, 2015:

    This is the best course for the serious guitarist .
    Only had it one day and yes I can see the difference already most well thought out and nicely laid out course . Please keep them coming we need this kind of teaching . Thank you a very satisfied customer Ken Andrews

  2. Bob, September 8, 2015:

    I love this 30 lesson book. You are a very good communicator of musical terms. I’ve been taking it slow but that’s ok. Your lessons are very well structured and make it easy for review. Thanks again for a wonderful learning tool. This is a great resource for me that grew up on rock and blues without a lot of theory.

  3. Bart (NYC), September 18, 2015:

    Just diving into the course after paying for a private lesson. (At a far greater price) So far (Days 1-2 down), I think I am getting more out of this than the time spent there. Having mostly self-taught, the lessons are helping me with practical applications in all areas (I peeked ahead for the other days) The backing tracks help keep me in time/rhythm (I tend to play alone) I cant wait to get deeper into the lessons and then apply what I learn(ed) in the Jazz Combo class I belong to here in NYC.

    I really like the 3 level approach as I am bordering somewhere between 2-3 depending on the topic (again I peeked ahead)

    I would definitely recommend making the purchase here.

    My “set list” went from essentially 0 songs from memory to 25 so I really need the information in this book to help me apply concepts in practice, instead of just “noodling” around.

    My Profile as a player:
    Learned guitar after college years
    Mostly self-taught after a handful of lessons back in the late 80’s
    Intermediate level at this point (due to life getting in the way)
    Recently getting back into playing regularly
    Joined a Jazz Combo group class so I play with others.

  4. Robert Peveler, September 29, 2015:

    This is a great course and works at many levels from beginner to moderately developed player. There is a lot here I have not seen elsewhere, and I have road-tested a lot! Great work.
    The only addition I would have loved to see would be an explation, in the phrasing section, on how best to tackle the “short” (i.e. half bar) chords in say a blues progression. All well and good to give extensive patterns etc, but there is not space in 2 beats even if you play sixteenths!
    But strongly recommended.

  5. Kent Schreiner, October 20, 2015:

    I’m part way through this “30 day” course and I’m very impressed. I was looking for a methodical approach to improving my knowledge and playing of jazz guitar and this fit my needs perfectly. Happily, it will take me quite a bit longer than 30 days to get through it all!

  6. Edward Ingram, October 20, 2015:

    Thirty days? I have been at this wonderful method for three months and am on day 11. I did scan through the whole ebook first then got down to work.
    Really I have improved my understanding and fingering

  7. Lewis, October 20, 2015:

    I think it is a great book but just a tad bit unreasonable for working Adults. Truthfully I wish this book had come out while I was in my teens or 20’s; then I actually had the time (and mental capacity…LOL) to do it in 30 days. I actually think the title should be “30 Weekends to Better Jazz Guitar eBook” and that is the approach I am taking with it. All that being said, I do strongly recommended the book…

  8. Iain Neilly, October 20, 2015:

    I bought this e-book a couple of years ago and I am still using it today. You will certainly become a better guitarist in 30 days but the content will last you a lifetime. While I am not a jazz guitarist per se, (how I wish)I play almost, exclusively in church and bought it to improve overall musicianship. It did all of that and more. I have been playing about 35 years and am self-taught. Oh how I wish this had been available back then. It would have saved years of wasted effort and chasing down blind alleys. The other thing is Matt just doesn’t take your money and run but offers continual support and sends several emails a week with free lessons and keeping you up to date. If there’s only one book you could buy for overall improvement, regardless of style (I’ll never be Grant Green or Joe Pass)then this is it. Great book and great guy. Buy it now, you won’t regret it (and it’s cheap, too).

  9. Bob C, October 20, 2015:

    These lessons are really helping me to achieve a jazzy sound. They are progressive and sequential, building upon the previous lessons. They continue to stretch my boundaries of understanding and experience which forces me to play many chords and notes in different positions on the neck. All of this at a great price. This is a wonderful and economic learning tool that I’ll be using for a long time. Thank you.

  10. Mark Miller, October 20, 2015:

    Sure to provide the reader with years of first class study. You won’t be disappointed.

  11. T George, October 20, 2015:

    I am having more fun and learning more than I ever imagined. These lessons are priceless for guitarists of any style.

  12. Tesh Hadzikadunic, October 20, 2015:

    An absolutely brilliant book. It is well structured and lessons build in one another as you progress. It’s just the right amount of spoon feeding for my liking. I bought the first edition also but it was probably a little too advanced for me. I think this book addresses that as it builds very slowly and now with supporting backing tracks. There is far more than 30 days work here but it does lend a good structure to the lessons.
    I would thoroughly recommend it. The best bit is that if you get stuck you can always have a lesson with Matt. Something else I would thoroughly recommend!

  13. James Krasinski, October 20, 2015:

    Thank you, Matt for such an impressive and insightful E book. “30 Days to Better Jazz Guitar 2nd Edition”, is one of the best teaching guides for jazz guitar.

  14. Tom, October 23, 2015:

    Insightful, thorough, and eminently useful. Three-tiered lessons make the material available to every level of player. As noted above, this eBook will last me much longer than 30 days. Well done, Matt.

  15. Bokke, October 23, 2015:

    Hi Matt, I like to thank you for the lessons I received so far, they’re very helpfull and though I’m a slow student I enjoy them a lot!

  16. Albert., October 23, 2015:

    As an old jazz musician who’s spent a lifetime playing trombone the unaccountable desire to switch to guitar was a bit of a leap of faith. Not so with Matt’s 30 Days to Better Jazz Guitar. The benefits can be seen from page one with everything precise and fully understandable. Only up to day four but already my progress is obvious. A great tutor, would highly recommend it.

  17. Mark, October 23, 2015:

    Great material, well presented. Agree with the previous writer, in that doing everything thoroughly is more likely to take me 30 weekends than 30 days. Which suits me, since I am looking to learn, not looking for a quick fix. All in all good job, and thanks Matt.

  18. Güray, November 8, 2015:

    I’ve been studying your priceless lessons for a while. I bought your book as a birthday gift to myself. I’m pretty sure that i’ll learn a lot of stuff from it. Thank you already. Warm regards from Turkey…
