  61. Matthew Warnock, March 24, 2013:

    Thanks for checking out my jazz guitar lessons and for entering the contest. Good luck man!

  62. douglas bence, March 24, 2013:

    In the high and far off days, guitarists were very protective of what they did, reluctant to share the simplest lick unless they were certain that the player they were talking to couldn’t play it! This still holds true of Flamenco players in Spain. But the Internet mercifully changed most of that, the Internet and the way it was used by players like Matthew Warnock who freely share their knowledge and experience. As a result, playing standards are higher all round and everybody wins. And that’s what music, jazz and the guitar should be all about. Long may it continue and every success to Matt and others like him.

  63. J, March 24, 2013:

    Thanks for all the well explained lessons Matt!

    I love the way you manage to make everything seem so simple and always place the music above the conept. Jazz teachers I have had in the past really took the enjoyment out of playing jazz for me due to their textbook thinking and lack of musical expression.

    Look forward to more great lessons.

  64. Leonid, March 24, 2013:

    Matt, I respect you very much since you sent me your guitar chord solo Insensitive few years ago, and I always look forward to another newspaper of you, to enjoy the fine set out educational material once again. Thank you very much.

    Hey do you have any “trips to Vegas” in you prize collection??

    I’ll settle for one of you books. They are interesting and informative, but nothing beats Vegas.
    Is that London England time or some London here in the states?

    Have a great day, Matthew!!

  162. Mike Heise, March 24, 2013:

    Matt;
    Thank you for this fresh approach to teaching jazz guitar. I have long dabbled in jazz guitar, but have always had trouble setting up a consistent approach that a hobbyist can use. As a retired high school teacher, I love to see an approach to teaching that reaches all levels of player. Congratulations on a job well done!

  163. Glenn Betcher, March 24, 2013:

    Matt, I’ve been playing guitar for over 50 years, both classical and jazz, and you’ve managed to make things fresh. I applaud your innovation for using social media to reach that “hidden jazz market” that everyone wishes they could find. Good luck in all you do.

  164. Mark, March 24, 2013:

    Great to see that this past two years as been successful, Matt ! For me, being able to focus on learning Jazz, even guitar, on a specific subject works. Thus, your method does just that , thanks and may the next year be as progressive.

  168. Denis Barsalo, March 24, 2013:

  180. Craig Hedrick, March 24, 2013:

    There are some people who seem to think I have some level of guitar skill. They actually call me “guitarist.” I am a picker at best.
    I tell them all, if you want to “get jazzy with it” go see Matt!

  197. Chris Downing, March 24, 2013:

    Good to see everything is fireing on all cylinders. Yours is one of the best stes around for those wanting to learn jazz and serious guitar playing. I always point players to yourmaterials as part of their development. You do the higher level teaching I rarely get to do as a guitar and bass teacher – mine is 80% beginners and young players.

  198. larry, March 24, 2013:

  206. C. Boyd, March 24, 2013:

    I regret that this terrific resource was not available ab0ut 10 years ago when I started to study jazz guitar. A lot of time was wasted with material that was of little use.

    Your jazz instruction is a invaluable service to the jazz guitar commnunity.

    Thank you

  232. Nicholas Pinder, March 24, 2013:

    Your bite-sized lessons and straightforward presentation reminds me of Kahn Academy. I find them valuable, thanks.

  246. Mike Zatirka, March 24, 2013:

    I really appreciate the fact that you put up free lessons. Over th eyears, I’ve purchased many “Hot To” Guitar books that looked good in the store, bue whne you get them home and actually start working through them, they are a lot less than they seem.

    You obviously have a loyt of confidence in your teaching materials to give “free samples”. And that confidence appears well justified.

  247. christopher durney, March 24, 2013:

    Hi Matt,greetings from New Zealand,thankyou for your great lessons which when mastered sound like real jazz rather than just another exercise.Cheers ,Christopher Durney.

    Thanks for all your clear explanations and practical exercises. I especially appreciate your postings on drop 2 inversions and bebop eclosures which I’m trying to integrate into my daily practice. At the moment I’m experimenting with the first of your George Benson licks just about everywhere – and there’s so much more…

  254. Glenn, March 24, 2013:

    Matt, you’re one of a kind for giving us so much of your time and musical knowledge. And now you’re doing a giveaway for us too!?!?! You’re too kind and I wish there were more people like you.

  270. Stephen, March 24, 2013:

    Have been playing since I was 11 am now 60 arthritis makes chords difficult but your explanation of 3 and 4 note chords together with solo improvisation has motivated me once again to create my own jazz interpretations of songs. Many thanks for your unbeknown guidance. Cheers!!

    Can’t tell you how clearly your lessons make the theory part of guitar seem. Play this, play that, sound tracks; all get connected in my 65 year old brain and make me and my old Guild T50 sound great!! (In my mind)
    Thanks for your interest in us, the “Maybe Someday” players. You keep us in the learning loop. You’re to be applauded!!

    I have been enjoying your weekly newsletter for the last two years. Thanks for sharing so much information about playing jazz guitar. I especially enjoyed the Christmas songs this year. I downloaded them last year too; but this year I was actually able to get through the chord changes in half time and sometimes up to speed. I just wish I had enough extra time to devote to the guitar,

    PS: still learning at your 30-days-to-get-a-better-guitarist-stuff, it seems it is instead a 30-MONTH-lecture……

  338. Kari, March 25, 2013:

    Trying to get into jazz guitar for a while, I bumped into your site and got stuck in it…. You have very good lessons there, and I have already got myself your e-book intitled 30 days to play better Jazz and hope to get some more in the next future. Bravo and if you intend to realease a course covering the work of Tal Farlow, George Benson, Pat Martino, etc, all these players covering Jazz Blues (especially organ trio) let me know…

  339. rkwestcoast, March 25, 2013:

  351. Andrew Grant Mazak, March 25, 2013:

    Matt, I can’t believe how hard you work at this. I’m also incredibly impressed by the quality of your materials. I’ve been playing various styles of guitar music for over 40 years. I have also been a guitar teacher for nearly that long. Jazz was (is) the final frontier for me. Your web site has been a great help as I try to sort out what to practice and how to use what I’ve learned to make better music. I have also been really impressed with the way you present jazz concepts. You’ve been a huge help to me as a player, and also as a teacher. Thank you for all you’ve done to help us out. Blessings.
    Grant

  352. Simon, March 26, 2013:

    After quite a few years of playing it amazing how much just a few weeks of practice using the tips on your website have improved my playing and understanding of jazz guitar. Also the 251 Chords app is excellent. Cheers.

  353. Joao Paz, March 26, 2013:

    THANKS FOR THE INSPIRATIONAL WORK!

  371. Ariel, March 26, 2013:

    Dear Matt,

    Thanks for sharing your wisdom! I learned a long time ago that teaching is the true learning and that all the I’m-better-than-you-nonsense is just that, nonsense. When we share we all are elevated and become more.

    All the best!

  372. Joe, March 26, 2013:

    I love exploring these lessons – Matt Warnock has made jazz guitar digestible and fun!!!

    Thanks again for all your great lessons and congratulations of your success.

    George

  375. jean-jacques beaupré, March 26, 2013:

  378. kevin, March 26, 2013:

    thank you matt your web site and e-mails teach the fundamentals of playing jazz guitar all the way thru the advanced/professional level.there is so much to learn in jazz music and you always have the answers.if you want know how to play jazz guitar inside out,upside down,backwards and fowards this is the place to be.

  379. Mark Crisp, March 27, 2013:

  382. Shawn Downer, March 27, 2013:

    I feel it would be a great pleasure to further my learning of music. I find that jazz is the most desirable and expressive forms of music.

  383. Chris Reed, March 27, 2013:

  384. Daniel Gonzalez, March 27, 2013:

    Happy anniversary Matt, the lessons are always fun and interesting. As an entering jazz student, this site is very useful to me.

  385. Steve, March 27, 2013:

    Thanks for all of your information and motivation!

  386. Steve Vetter, March 27, 2013:

    Following you takes guts Matt because you make us come face to face with our weaknesses and even laziness (yeah, I said it!) Your suggestions and tips and lessons require hard work and dedication and sometimes it’s fun to just “blow.” However, to get anywhere in jazz guitar we must take to heart that which you preach. We just have to go watch you play a song to see the rewards of all that honest, hard work. Sigh…….I do work very hard at this stuff and it does pay off, but you are a monster dedication and application. It’s great to see it in action!

  387. Bjorn, March 27, 2013:

    Hi Matt,

    Thank you for a great jazz guitar site. I have learned a lot from you, and you have helped me evolve as a guitar player in other genres aswell, they’re all connected. :-)

  392. Miguel, March 27, 2013:

    Matt, I’ve been reading your site since it was launched and I must say this is one of the best resources on the net to learn jazz guitar, and with soooo many guitar related sites out there that says a lot about your work and your commitment to jazz education.

    Best regards

  393. Ben, March 27, 2013:

    Always love checking out your interesting Facebook posts. Thanks and keep it up!

  394. e, March 27, 2013:

    thanks so much for building the site over the past 2 years. I’ve only been following it for about 6 months but have gotten a lot out of it + the guitar chord app.

    here’s to two more!

  395. Bill O'Brien, March 27, 2013:

    Matt,
    I’d like to give you a long overdue THANK YOU for your wonderful and very informative “classes.” Your approach to theory and it’s application is so relaxed and yet so educational without making it feel like a advanced college level, nuclear fusion class. I’ve been playing/teaching for 34 years as a professional guitar and bass player, spanning many genres. Jazz by far is my favorite. So often the student struggles with basic concepts. I have to admit I have lovingly “borrowed” a few of your techniques in my own playing AND teaching, with much success. I enjoy your phrasing and paying style very much. In fact, a single phrase that you offer can easily become a several-classes spanning experience. I thank you for your dedication to the genre and it’s perpetuation. Jazz much live on.

    I live in New Jersey, USA. Back in the 1980′s/90′s , I had the unique and humbling opportunity to meet , play with and other times just watch in AWE, the great Tal Farlow. A towering, yet nicest/gentlest man there was. One of the GREATEST bebop/swing players there ever was, in my opinion. I learned so much from him. It was HIS playing that first exposed Jazz to me. I have never been the same since. :).

    You carry on in that tradition. I just want to thank you. Offering so much for free and still reserve enough to make a business out of something you LOVE. That’s true dedication to the art-form and shows your love of what you do! Thank you again.

    Bill

  396. greg, March 27, 2013:

    Hi Matt

    I have both of your apps and I am finding your site very useful. I hope to meet you in London, UK

    cheers

    John

  407. Matthew Warnock, March 28, 2013:

    Congrats on 2 years, I wish you the best in your future endeavors. I took a Jazz course at Berklee as part of a cert class. Life got in the way but I enjoyed the Jazz class and was going to take a couple more, but decided it was too pricey. I am glad I found your site and plan to use your 30days book and forum to improve my playing. Thanks
