What Will You Learn?

Our Premium Lessons Promo Package contains 20 lessons that will teach you how to play jazz guitar
in a way that is fast, effective and fun. Because of my experience as a teacher, player and webmaster of
this website, I know why most guitar players get stuck and what you need to become a better guitarist.
All the hard work has been done for you, you just need to follow the lessons and absorb the material.

  • You'll learn everything you need to become the jazz guitar player you want to be: theory, chords,
    chord inversions, scales, phrasing, styles, licks, tricks, ...
  • How to improvise: I'll give you the tools and knowledge you need so you can improvise over any chord
    progression with ease and play in a jazzy, bluesy style.
  • How to play jazz chords & rhythms and how to add variety to them.
  • You'll learn how to play classic jazz songs like All The Things You Are, Autumn Leaves, All Blues,
    Stella by Starlight, Take The A Train, ... but also songs in other styles, like Night in Tunesia and Girl
    From Ipanema
    .
  • You'll learn how to play like Wes Montgomery, Joe Pass, George Benson, Kenny Burrell, Charlie
    Parker
    , Miles Davis, Jim Hall & many more. You'll discover how they think, what defines their style and
    how you can play like them.

 

The Topics of Volume 1 & 2

  • Issue 1 - Four on Six: learn how to play Wes Montgomery's composition Four on Six, how to improvise over the changes, which scales and arpeggios Wes uses and many more tips.
  • Issue 2 - Sonic Shapes: how to use chords and other shapes to improvise over chord changes. You'll learn how to use chord shapes as a visual aid for improvising, how to use diminished chord shapes to play over dominant chords and how to use Howard Robert's sonic shapes.
  • Issue 3 - All Blues: learn how to play a nice arrangement of Miles Davis' composition All Blues + many tips on how to solo over the changes.
  • Issue 4 - Blue Bossa: in this lesson you'll get this fun-to-play bossa nova standard under your fingers in no time. The harmony is not difficult and the theme is simple, but sounds great. Blue Bossa is often played at jams, so it's a good idea to add it to your repertoire.
  • Issue 5 - Don't Get Around Much Anymore: in this issue you'll learn a solo arrangement of Don't Get Around Much Anymore, a classic written by Duke Ellington who recorded it in 1940. Because we use walking bass in the arrangement, I thought it might be a good idea to have a look at how walking bass works as well.
  • Issue 6 - Unit 7: Unit 7 is a great jazz standard composed by bass player Sam Jones. The most famous version of Unit 7 is on Wes Montgomery's album "Smokin' at the Half Note". In this lesson we also talk about an harmonic technique used by Wes Montgomery: the minorization of dominant chords.
  • Issue 7 - Inversions: in this issue we're going to have a look at chord inversions. A good grasp of inversions is one of those things many guitarists lack. Inversions can be daunting at first, but they seem a lot more complex than they really are.
  • Issue 8 - How Insensitive: in this issue you'll learn how to play Antonio Carlos Jobim's bossa nova classic How Insensitive. We'll also have a look at the harmony and some popular bossa nova intros.
  • Issue 9 - Jazz Guitar Theory: in this lesson you'll get a healthy dose of theory: swing feel, syncopation and a guide to using intervals in your playing + many practical examples.
  • Issue 10 - Jazz Blues Soloing Ideas: In this lesson, you will explore four different ways that you can use techniques from Wes Montgommery, Kenny Burrell and Miles Davis to organize your ideas as you improvise over jazz blues tunes.
  • Issue 11 - George Benson Soloing Techniques: learn how to improvise in the style of the amazing jazz guitarist George Benson. You'll learn blues techniques (double stops, the blues scale, minorization, ....), creative use of arpeggios, the 9 sound, chromatic playing, bebop patterns, octave displacement and much more...
  • Issue 12 - Autumn Leaves: in this lesson you'll learn how to play a chord melody version of Autumn Leaves, comping over the changes, a walking bass line, an improvisation study and some great examples of classic licks.
  • Issue 13 - There Will Never Be Another You: to help you get this great and fun to play standard under your fingers, this lesson will introduce you to a harmonized arrangement of the theme and takes you through a voice leading study, a scale study and an arpeggio study.
  • Issue 14 - Joe Pass: to help you dig into Joe’s soloing concepts, from both single-note and chord soloing angles, we have broken down six classic Joe Pass licks for you to study and apply to your own solos. There's aslo a Joe Pass styled solo over Autumn Leaves that you can learn in order to see how these licks can be applied to a soloing situation over a jazz standard.
  • Issue 15 - Kenny Burrell: There are few players that have had a longer and more influential career than the great jazz guitarist Kenny Burrell. Burrell has inspired countless guitarists to make the switch from blues and rock to jazz with his own unique style of blues and bebop inspired playing. When studying Burrell's soloing concepts there are a number of important areas that you can explore, and two of the most characteristic of his playing will be covered in this lesson, blues lines and short major key ii V Is.
  • Issue 16 - Bossa Nova Comping: learn how to authentically comp Bossa Nova and Samba patterns on your guitar. In this lesson, you will learn how to break down these rhythms in order to make complicated patterns easier to learn, as well as apply all of these rhythmic patterns to a common chord progression.
  • Issue 17 - Stella by Starlight: When you hear the words chord melody, you often think of very complex arrangements where you have one chord for every note in the melody line. While you can use this approach to build chord melodies in, there are other options when combining chords and melodies on the fretboard. In this lesson you will learn how to play 3rds and 7ths, how to build a chord melody, and how to play a chord melody for the jazz standard Stella by Starlight.
  • Issue 18 - Wes Montgomery Jazz Waltzes: As most of us start studying the 4/4 time signature when first exploring jazz guitar, the 3/4 jazz waltz feel can sometimes feel a bit awkward or be intimidating to study. One of the best players to study in order to build confidence and vocabulary over when soloing over a jazz waltz is Wes Montgomery. In this lesson you will study a number of single note, octave and chord licks in the style of Wes Montgomery, as well as learn a sample solo written over the chord changes to the Wes classic “West Coast Blues.”
  • Issue 19 - Girl From Ipanema Solo: In this solo study you will learn many classic jazz soloing concepts applied to one of the most commonly played Jazz Standards. Concepts covered are 3 to 9 Arpeggios, Bebop Voice Leading, Syncopation, Blues Notes and more.
  • Issue 20 - Misty Chord Melody: One of the most loved jazz standards, Misty is also one of the first ballads that many jazz guitarists learn. As it is such a popular tune, learning how this song was written from a melodic and harmonic standpoint, getting a chord melody arrangement under your fingers, as well as exploring common soloing vocabulary over this tune is essential learning for any jazz guitarist.

Hi Dirk

Wishing you the best for 2015.

I have 4 folders, 2 with Premium Issues 1-20 and 2 with your online lessons. What a quantity of excellent stuff. Your material will probably outlive me but they are sure extremely helpful to me, an intermediate player. Keep it going.

I am an advanced player but need to refresh my skills, especially if its about jazz guitar. II bought both volumes and only worked through a small part yet. It is as much fun as it is helping me developing my guitar skills. Money well spent! Best lessons I could find on the net.
