This DVD lesson covers everything you need to know about the basic language of jazz. It teaches clearly and concisely all of the necessary techniques required for advanced jazz guitar playing.

The Essentials of Jazz Guitar is not only vital for those new to the genre, but also of value to seasoned players who may have glossed over the valuable building blocks of jazz theory. It begins with basic chord scale relationships and chord construction and then progresses to extended and altered chords, substitution, harmonic pluralities, song-form and indispensable chord progressions.

A detailed tab/music instructional booklet is included as a PDF file on the DVD.

    This is the first time I have felt I DID NOT get my monies worth. This same information, plus much much more is available in book form and far better presented DVDs. A BIG disappointment!!
