Anyone with a knowledge of basic chords and guitar scales can dig right in and learn to play jazz right away. This well-paced, comprehensive method covers everything, from basic to advanced techniques. The clearly organized lessons add up to a step-by-step, enjoyable method supplemented by full-length etudes or songs with every new concept. Beginning concepts span from major scale and basic triad theory all the way to extended chords and the modes. For the intermediate player, this book can help with the ii-V-I progression, creating solo lines, altered chord formulas, and comping in such jazz feels such as Latin, swing, ballad, and even funk. You will then master the art of playing harmony, melody, rhythm, and bass parts of a song simultaneously, making your guitar the ultimate jazz solo instrument. The book concludes with advanced techniques for improvisation. Whether you are starting to learn jazz guitar or are an advanced player looking to give your playing more nuance, Jazz Guitar Method Complete is all you'll ever need. An MP3 CD demonstrating examples in the book is included.

    I have purchased many jazz guitar books and this is one of the most comprehensive it really covers nearly everything from beginner to advanced, especially when it comes to The advanced section. The information on everything from arpeggios to scales and the harmony theory and melodic minor scales et cetera...

    is excellent. The information presented is much better than the performance examples on the CD but if you take the information and apply it to songs from a fake book et cetera you really have everything you need.
