So What




The best way to learn jazz guitar is to work on tunes.

Jazz Standards keep you focused in the practice room, teach you practical application of techniques, and give you tunes to jam with other musicians.

Everything you need to jam at home, or on the bandstand, can be learned by studying jazz standards.

Easy Jazz Guitar Comping gives you everything you need to sound jazzy and build your confidence in your comping.

And, the most important part, these exercises are fun so you actually look forward to doing them every day.

If you want to become the best jazz guitarist possible, while having fun and improvising every day in the woodshed, Easy Jazz Guitar Soloing is for you.

  • Started looking through the “Fly Me to the Moon” study guide today. As I would expect, full of information that not only provides a way of digging deep into this song but also has infinite possibilities to use in all of my playing. Many thanks Matt. - Mark
  • Organized information, easy to dig and put on the fretboard. I enjoy studying and learning tunes with the guides. The material helps me to explore and develope personal skills as a jazz guitar performer. - Francisco
