Welcome to Jazz for the Curious Guitarist! If you are ready to finally learn how to play real jazz guitar, then this course is for you. I will take you from the very beginning to show you the basics of guitar playing through to a high level of jazz in which you'll have knowledge of all chords that exist, basic & advanced scales & arpeggios, rhythm, and music & guitar theory.
I start the course assuming that you don't play guitar at all. I assume you are a complete beginner. The first section of the course is all about teaching you the guitar basics to get you ready for the jazz lessons. Every lesson video in this course has PDF attachments in the additional resources tabs. Some lessons have multiple attachments.
The next five sections are the jazz lessons. They are: Beginner, Novice, Intermediate, Advanced, & Expert sections. The lessons are cumulative (each lesson builds on the previous lesson.) We will work extensively on chords, scales, arpeggios, rhythm, music theory, and various jazz concepts.
Any kind of six-string guitar will work well for this course - electric guitar, acoustic guitar, or classical guitar.
It's well-known that many of the best guitarists in the world are jazz guitarists, so we have a lot of work to do, but I will get you there as quickly as I can! I know exactly what you need to learn. I know exactly how to teach you.
I'm excited that you're here! The world needs more jazz guitar players.
This is going to be a lot of fun! Let's begin.
