Another great book from one of the best teachers and players out there. Dr. Warnock nails it yet again.


Gratulations Dirk Laukens, phantastic material for directly working. I started with my guitar, my looping pedal on amp and it sounds great. I played guitar a long time before, so it´s easy to understand and get a good feeling for playing jazz, thank you for this ebook.

A very good ebook, well done!


Jazz leren spelen is oefenen, oefenen en oefenen. Dit e-book is begrijpelijk, met logische oefeningen en is een goede gids aan de hand van de jazz van Wes


These e-books are so full of informative and useable information, easy to understand.. At such a low cost too what a pleasure.

Keep up the great work Dirk!


This is a must have book, excellent! Every aspiring guitarist should purchase it .


Awesome book and I really liked the history or Wes' story, didn't know he worked in a factory while playing great music. If you are new or not up to speed get a program to slow down the samples, they are at a pretty quick temp and it will help in the learning process. Maybe if there were sound samples at half speed to go with the full tempo sounds.


Just excellent. Thanks for putting this together.

Thanks to your publication I could easily understand the language of jazz composers represented. I found, in all publications purchased, a simple language that made the original works of the air training more effective and inclusive.


I haven't yet applied these lessons to my playing yet but after a review of the material it looks well done and delivered in a organized approach. There's a lot phrasing, octaves, chords ideas in here that I'm very excited to try out. One thing could be better. I would like to see the written music when I'm playing the sound bite (when you click play, you go to a web page and away from the i-book). This doesn't detract from the quality of the material.


Is it challenging? - Yes
Is it worth it? - Without a doubt.
Well written and well organized, if you stick with it it'll be well worth your time.


Very good summary not only of Wes's style but the information required to play straight ahead jazz in general.

As always I feel that the most important aspect of Wes's playing - his exceptional time feeling are only understood by listening, learning and playing along with his music. If this books helps with that, it has served its purpose.

Would make an excellent companion to Smokin' at the Half Note and a copy of Transcribe. Time to get to work :-)
