Jazz Guitar Lessons For Beginners

Here is a selection of easy lessons that will help you get started playing jazz guitar. These 4 lessons focus on 4 important aspects of learning jazz guitar – chords, arpeggios, scales, and playing jazz standards.

This foundational lesson will teach you 17 chords essential to playing jazz guitar. These chords will enable you to play nearly any jazz standard (chord chart & exercises).

Arpeggios are what give a jazz solo its “jazzy sound”! In this lesson, you will learn the basics of arpeggios and how you can use them to improvise over jazz standards.

Guitar scales can seem intimidating to beginning guitarists. This lesson breaks them down to the very basics, teaching you the 7 most important scales for jazz guitar.

The next step in learning jazz guitar is playing songs. Autumn Leaves is an easy jazz song that is the perfect introduction to jazz standards and essential for your repertoire.

A big part of learning jazz guitar is learning how to play chords. Drop 2 chords are the most important type of jazz chords and essential in your jazz guitar practice routine. Once you got these under your fingers, have a look at drop 3 chords, inversions and quartal chords. When learning jazz chords, it’s a good idea to study chord progressions, as these are the building blocks of jazz standards.

Our comprehensive reference guide includes 244 chord shapes so you can play chords with confidence!

With this chord dictionary in hand, soon you’ll be able to determine the perfect 7th-chord voicings for comping or improvisation (PDF download included).

Drop 2 chords are the most popular and useful chord voicings for jazz guitarists and have been used by many great jazz guitar players such as Wes Montgomery and Joe Pass.

Download our chord chart and learn how to play drop 2 chords for comping, soloing and chord-melody arrangements.

In this comping lesson, you will learn the 10 most popular jazz chord progressions with practical examples for guitar.

Chord progressions (especially the 251) are the backbone of any jazz standard and knowing how to play the most-used progressions is essential for any jazz musician. Practicing these 10 progressions will give you a head start when learning new jazz standards.

Jazz Guitar Scales are a vital part of playing jazz guitar. Getting started with jazz scales can be complicated because of the wide choice of scales. Besides knowing which scale you can use on which chord, you also need to memorize these scales over the entire fret board before you can apply them to jazz standards. Our lessons will help you in this process, the fun and easy way!

Guitar modes can be a bit confusing at the start, but once you get your head around the basic idea, you will notice modes can be quite simple and very useful for jazz guitar improvisation.

In this lesson, you will learn the modes of the major scale. You will learn the theory behind guitar modes, the different fingerings on guitar, and how to use them in your solos.

The pentatonic scale is usually one of the first scales you learn as a guitar player. It is used a lot in blues, rock, and pop, but many jazz guitar players seem to neglect this scale. This doesn’t have to be the case though, because the pentatonic scale is very useful, in jazz as well as other genres.

In this lesson, you will learn all the necessary fingerings of the minor pentatonic scale, and how you can use it to spice up your jazz solos.

The bebop scale is one of the easiest ways to add a jazzy sound to your guitar playing. This is because you add a chromatic note to the regular modes, and chromatic notes are an important aspect of the jazz sound.

There are three types of bebop scales: the dominant, minor and major bebop scale.

In this lesson, you will learn what the bebop scales are, how they look on the guitar and how you can use these scales in your solos.

The diminished scale is used to improvise over diminished chords, which occur quite frequently in jazz chord progressions. In this lesson, you will learn the theory behind diminished scales and work on some guitar exercises to learn how to use this scale in your jazz guitar solos.

Studying jazz guitar licks is a great way to improve your jazz vocabulary. The most important aspect of studying licks is understanding the concepts and ideas behind these licks, so that you can use these ideas in your own playing.

Build your jazz guitar vocabulary by learning these 50 classic bebop jazz guitar licks, as well as the important concepts behind each lick.

Learning to understand the concepts behind jazz licks is one of the most important aspects of building a jazz vocabulary.

Build your jazz guitar vocabulary by learning these 25 classic bebop jazz guitar licks, as well as the important concepts behind each lick.

Learning to understand the concepts behind jazz licks is one of the most important aspects of building a jazz vocabulary.

Learning jazz guitar licks is an is essential when learning how to play jazz guitar.

By studying classic jazz guitar licks, you learn how to phrase and develop rhythmic as well as melodic ideas.

In this lesson, you will learn 30 classic jazz licks over major, minor, and dominant chords.

The Lick is probably the most famous jazz phrase ever, you will literally start hearing it everywhere once it gets in your ears!

The Lick is a bebop phrase that is usually played over a minor 2-5-1 but can be played over other chords as well.

Learn how to bring out the bluesy side of jazz by studying the blues concepts of Wes Montgomery, Herb Ellis and more (16 licks and 4 solos).

Learn how you can use scales and arpeggios to jazzify your blues solos and bring variety to your blues scale cliches.

The goal of studying technique, chords, scales, arpeggios, and voice leading is to play and improvise over jazz standards. If you are new to jazz, start with some easy jazz standards such as Autumn Leaves, Summertime, or Blue Bossa.

Autumn Leaves is a must-know jazz standard and an ideal jazz standard for beginning jazz guitar players and improvisers.

In this guitar lesson, you will learn a chord/melody version of Autumn Leaves. You will also learn how to solo over Autumn Leaves’ chord changes with the help of some backing tracks.

Summertime is another one of those popular jazz songs that every jazz player needs to know and a lot of fun to play and improvise over.

In this video lesson, you will learn a chord/melody arrangement of Summertime. You will also learn to improvise over the chord changes and learn a few soloing concepts.

All The Things You Are is another essential jazz standard and one that is often played by beginning jazz musicians, although it has a fairly complex harmony.

In this lesson, you will analyze the harmony of All The Things, learn a chord melody arrangement and a solo study.

In this jazz guitar lesson, you will learn how to play Misty, a great and fun-to-play jazz ballad written by Errol Garner.

You will learn a chord melody arrangement, how to analyze and play the chords, and how to solo over Misty’s chords (backing track included).

Learning how to improvise a jazz guitar solo can be daunting, especially if you want your solo to tell a story that keeps your listeners interested. Combining all the scales, arpeggios, and licks you studied into a jazz guitar solo is a lot of fun though, but is a skill that needs a lot of practice.

This jazz guitar lesson is the result of a survey with the question “What is the best jazz guitar solo ever played?”.

The names that made it to the top 10 are Wes Montgomery, Joe Pass, Pat Metheny, George Benson, Charlie Christian, Pat Martino, Jim Hall, Django Reinhardt, Kenny Burrell, and Grant Green.

Learning jazz guitar patterns is a great way to improve your jazz vocabulary.

In this improvisation lesson, you will focus on 5 classic jazz guitar patterns that will take your jazz guitar solos to the next level.

All of Me is a great jazz standard to practice your solo and improvisation skills on.

In this lesson, you will combine jazz guitar comping and improvisation over the changes of All of Me (in the style of Joe Pass). Being able to mix single-note solos and chord comping is an essential skill for jazz guitarists of all levels.

Four on Six is a great jazz standard written by Wes Montgomery in 1960 and is a lot of fun to play.

Besides learning the theme and intro, you will also learn how to improvise over Four on Six’s chord changes by analyzing the chords and learning which scales and arpeggios Wes Montgomery used in his solos.

Jazz Guitar Styles

Jazz music has since its origins been influenced by other genres of music, such as blues, swing, classical, and Latin music. In this section, we have a closer look at the different styles of jazz guitar, such as bebop, jazz blues, gypsy jazz, funk jazz à la George Benson, and bossa nova. 

Jazz and blues have always been heavily intertwined. The type of blues played by jazz musicians is more complex than traditional blues, but both have the same characteristics.

In this guitar lesson, you will learn 6 variations of the jazz blues progression going from the basic blues to more modern variations like the bebop blues.

Bebop is one of the most exciting jazz styles to play on the guitar. In this lesson, you will learn the basics of bebop: chromatic notes, the bebop scales, bebop motifs and a solo over Scrapple from the Apple in the style of Charlie Parker.

Practice the bebop concepts in this lesson and you will get that “jazzy” sound in your guitar playing.

Django Reinhardt is the icon of gypsy jazz guitar and his style of playing remains popular, also today.

In this lesson, you will learn how to improvise gypsy jazz solos in the style of Django Reinhardt (video, tabs, and audio included).

Learn how to play jazz-funk guitar, combining smooth jazz chords with the rhythmic fills of funk.

This lesson covers the basics of funk guitar, including chord rhythms and soloing. The first part of this lesson covers the rhythm guitar part, learning how to play funky guitar chords and chord progressions. In the second part you will learn how to play funk licks and fills.

Rhythm Changes is one of the most popular song forms in jazz and essential to get under your fingers.

This doesn’t mean that it is an easy chord progression. Playing an inspired jazz solo over a Rhythm Changes can be hard because of the many chords and the fast tempo it is usually played in.

Brazilian music had a great influence on players such as Stan Getz and Pat Metheny and lots of Bossa Nova songs are part of the jazz repertoire.

In this lesson, you will learn to play Brazilian jazz guitar licks and solos as you study the work of Baden Powell, Hermeto Pascoal, and more.

In this section, you will be exploring songs with a memorable guitar part that are not necessarily jazz, but tunes with a jazzy undertone.

The James Bond theme song  is on of the most famous movie themes ever. In this lesson, you will learn what the spy chord is and how to play the James Bond theme on guitar.

in 1966, Nancy Sinatra recorded a cover version of Bang Bang, written by Sonny Bono and originally released by Cher. The song features the iconic tremolo guitar part played by Billy Strange, which you will learn in this lesson.

Although music theory has a bit of a bad reputation, it can make your life as an improvising guitarist a lot easier. Music theory brings all technical aspects of learning jazz guitar together in an understandable framework that supports your improvisational skills.

In this music theory lesson, you will learn how to construct jazz guitar chords from scratch.

Understanding this essential theory will make finding chords on the fretboard much easier and it will take the guesswork out of playing jazz chords.

Improvising on the guitar requires you have a good understanding of note relationships on the fretboard.

In this lesson, you will learn about musical intervals, how they look on the guitar, and how you can practice intervals so you can use them in your solos.

In this lesson, you will learn how to read jazz chords on lead sheets the way they appear in fake books such as the Real Book.

You will learn how to color your chords, use chord tensions and substitutions while making sure your chords don’t clash with the melody.

Being able to analyze jazz harmony is an important skill for any jazz musician.

In this lesson, you will learn how to use Roman numerals for musical analysis and transposing on the guitar. This essential music theory lesson includes full song examples.

In this music theory lesson, you will learn what guitar positions are and how they can help you become a better guitar player.

By the end of the article, you will have a clear system so that you can confidently play major scales over the entire fretboard

Back cycling is an important concept in jazz music.

In this lesson, you will learn what back cycling is exactly, and how you can apply it to your solos and jazz chord progressions.

  7. Lou H.

    Thanks for all you do. Enjoying the site. New updates looking good.

  8. Allan Rathgeber

    I think you have nailed the layout for studying the process of learning this topic. The progression of difficulty is answered by following the suggested agenda of learning and I plan on following many of the suggested books to gain the knowledge I want. I would ask if you have a course on understanding the harmonized chord scales as this would advance my knowledge and help with progressions-I like to writ originals and am looking for ways to enhance my originals with jazz harmony. Any suggestions would be most helpful. Thank you in advance for your time.

  9. Frank

    Terrific new design. I’d love to see a study of Desafinado — one of my all-time favorites.

    1. Dirk Laukens

      Hi Frank, lovely song indeed, already working on a Desafinado lesson.

  10. Jim S.

    The new look is great. I’d like to see a study for “On the Sunny Side of the Street”

  12. rick

    Easy to look at!

  13. Manuel Perez Adan

    Great! Maybe I am lost but I didn`t find anything about Drop 3 Chords. I miss a link to Jazz Standard Study Guides Volume 4 in the Jazz Standards section.
    Finally, thank you very much for all the info you share with us

  14. Alan Mc Lean

    I love the lessons and if I was retired I’d spend all my time learning but unfortunately I have to go to work.I would really like a course/book dedicated to playing Jazz Chords in a practical way as opposed to the official fingering which sometimes make me think I need to be double jointed or have more fingers on my left hand.
    This course may already exist and if so then please ignore my request.

    1. Georg

      dont be to hopeful, I retired 11 years ago and hoped on days with my guitar. Now I guess, how I did all these things while I was working 😂

  15. lins

    Awesome – much clearer. I would like to see more chord and accompanying scale studies for entire songs

  16. Matt

    The new page looks great! It’s very easy to find what you’re looking for. If only I had more time to play.

    1. Dirk Laukens

      Hi Jeroen, outside playing has been on the list for a while, I’ll get a lesson up soon…

  26. John Blake Arnold

    The new page looks great! If I was to suggest a jazz lesson, it would be on Mel./Har. scale-based pentatonics and their usage over altered dominants and Standards, maybe citing Wes and Coltrane, etc. Thanks so much.

  27. George

    Comprehensive, concise, and cognitive cornucopia of coaching!

  28. Ken Niehoff

    Beautiful page and great info.

  32. RadioFM74

    I write this as I am listening to the 10 best solos… it’s a great thing you’ve done here: putting the wealth of free knowledge you’ve offered us all over the years within easy reach. It’s staggering too, but I’ll take my time! Thank you Dirk, thank you all at jazzguitar.be!

  33. Keith

    This presentation should cope with any player’s needs. It is thoroughly comprehensive, and very easy to follow.
    Well done!

  34. Paul

    Excellent. Top design. Well done.

  35. Schubart Dan

    Not for the faint of heart, but it would be interesting to get a window into some of Mahavishnu/John McLaughlin’s work. Nice job redoing the site.

  36. Ian Shropshire

    Looks great! Best wishes.

    1. Roy Shropshire

      Looking to get more info about playing Jazz Guitar, and saw your name.

  39. Bill Lombardo

    Dirk and Matt have generated so much guitar information and method over the years. I’ve been a member and fan since 2003. I have everything I need to play better guitar with a much better understanding of it’a musical depth. Thank you guy’s!!

  40. Mario Parque

    Very nicely done. You have already given most of us plenty of material to work on for quite awhile. I can see why most of the requests are for analysis of favorite tunes since you’ve covered the fundamentals so well. Can’t thank you enough for sharing so much info.

  41. Joe

    Your updated webpage looks great and is layed out well. The information you are offering in this email is staggering! After much searching and evaluating jazz guitar websites, I’m done. You guys are it. A big time “Thank you”.

  42. Alexandros Sarigiannis

    Very very nice! Thanks for all the nice lessons you give us!

  43. Mark Miller

  45. Jofus

    A wonderfull job – a labour of love !
    (Why not have a go at a Mose Allison song for jazz guitar ?)

  46. The site looks as clear, smooth and welcoming as your lessons and tutorials always have been! Compliments, great job done 🙂

  47. Hans

    Very nice improvement! The page is well organised, topics are easily found. Congratulations!

  48. Chuck

    Looks great Dirk.

  49. Jorge Alejandro

    Thanks for teaching me jazz guitar. Very nice your new lessons.-

  50. diamant

    Very clear and comprehensive new design.
    I loved the jazzfunk attempt and arpeggios presentation.
    Great work !

  51. Ms Otis Regrets

    great >>> Wish list ” Ms Otis Regrets ” ” I say a little Prayer” ( in memory of that Lady )
    both are basically simple chord structure. Learn Opportunity ? Link the chords with the melody

  52. David Dobrydnio

    I’ve read about the importance of understanding intervals vs just scales. In an effort to create melodies you break a scale into component intervals. I would like a lesson on converting harmonic intervals into melodic ones and varying rhythm to facilitate not falling into the trap of just playing scales. Short sweet and to the point soloing without the pork barrel overloaded with extra goop if you will. Hope I’m not asking for the world? Thanks David.

  53. Jeff Woods

    I’m thinking a simple intro lesson in “drop 3 chord shapes and voice leading” would be a great lesson.

  54. Georg

    Gratulation, a really great compendium. What I am looking for are licks at turnaround or while breaks. Listening to great guitarists or other musicians, they play nice fill ins.

  55. Naquat

    Nice job on the update! One suggestion so far. I notice that most guitar chord diagrams are lumped into different chords built around a core. IE: CM7, C7, Cm7, C6 etc. I took lessons many years ago and if memory serves me the instructor used “Letter Chords” as in “Letter A and Letter C” chords where you played a C7 starting on the first position, then C7 on 5th Fret, 8th Fret, 10th Fret and on if your guitar allowed this. Played one after the other forward and backward and played on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 6th strings for Letter A?, and 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th strings for Letter C chords always noting where the Root note was.
    I’m just starting to get my chops back on soloing and working on a lot of chords although I was never a Jazz guitarist because I didn’t put enough time into it. I’m older now and my priorities have changed a bit. I’ve forgotten most of my “Inside Chords” played on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th string except for the obvious CM7, C7 types.
    I liked the Letter chords played in sequence because it made it easier to memorize the same chord in multiple positions and seemed more natural when playing live to switch the same chord to a another position for a different sound.

    If my explanation is a bit confusing please let me know and I’ll try to clear it up.

    Love the site and the people. Great Job!
    Brian (Naquat)

  56. Anthony De Cicco

    Great site with a great new look…

  57. GlynisA

    Very nice layout and very comprehensive. Thank you for the various sections that are more readily accessible now and your continued support. I don’t quite know if this will make sense, but a lesson on how to incorporate melody lines and chords seamlessly and tastefully would be most appreciated.

  58. Helio

    Great update. Congrats!!!

  59. Jim

    Looks great well done

  60. R Pope

    A great bucket list for jazz guitarists and those who aspire. Quick and easy reference. Brilliant!

  61. Joseph

    Lots of information on your site. I dig the way that you’ve jazzed it up; it’s a much tighter and cleaner look.
    Bravo Dirk and Matt.

  62. Mike

    This is AWESOME =) well done

  63. kirby

    Your update looks great! Really well organized and clear descriptions for all the items.

  64. Vikthor Singapore

    Great work! I discovered Miles Davis in the 70’s and the I discovered your work. One of my greatest inspirations is John McLaughlin – if by chance any of his stylistic approaches can be examined under your Microscope, that would be very much appreciated. Thanks again for your great work!

  65. Steven Martin

    Wow. You guys have outdone yourselves in making the best one-stop, Google-Wiki-of-Jazz Guitar site I’ve ever seen.

    I have to admit to being Brazilcentric in my jazz tastes and was impressed to see Hermeto and Baden Powell — but was disappointed I did not see such luminaries as Joyce and Toninho Horta.

    I guess I’ve been musically spoiled living in Japan … where you can hear Milton Nascimento, Ivan Lins, and Bill Evans for background music in the equivalent of even the cheapest five and dime stores.

    Still, this homepage will be my daily starting place for the near future.

    Great job guys … and impressed with super-fast, real-time, personal service. Hope this thing lives and prospers, big-time.

    1. Andre

      Definitly Ze right place to be

  66. Douglas Bence

    Much easier to find things – I didn’t know there was so much

  67. Alan Booth

    Looks good for me Dirk and Matt, there’s plenty for me as it is without anything more, well done!

  68. Josh Braun

    Layout is so much better. So much easier to find what I’m looking for quickly. Thank you for all that you guys do! Would love to see a lesson in the future built around the playing of Mike DiMicco, maybe something like West Of One from the Brubeck Brothers Quartet album Intuition.

  69. Keld Langberg

    The new page looks great. I have bought a lot of the books and I am going to use them more when I retire (which is not that far away, timewise).
    Continue the style with the books and the lessons – they can hardly be better. Good job.

  70. Trevor

    What an awesome resource for anyone wanting to learn jazz guitar or improve the scope of their playing. I can say from experience it is so user friendly and can be approached in your own way.
    The bonus is that it is regularly expanded and improved. Just do it!

  71. Peter Roberts

    Really good design Dirk. Comprehensive and very user-friendly for navigation. Thanks.

  72. Walter

    Hi Dirk and Matt. Congratulations on the new page. Things are even easier to find now. The old one was not too bad either. I can hardly believe that this amount of material can be accessed for free. Great job and great teaching. Thanks. Do you have any ideas for successful practicing? How much time each day?

  73. Richard

    Dirk and Matt – very nice job on the redesign of the lessons page. The previous design was good, this new one is exceptional in it’s presentation of your outstanding material. You guys, hands down, have the best jazz guitar instruction site on the internet! Your ebooks and free lessons are excellent! Thank you so much for making all this great material available – I know it must take a lot of work.
    Best wishes,

  74. Serge Quirion

  77. Praveen Nirmalan

    Excellent update. Shows in a nutshell how much fun left to explore! Been wading through and trying out the different lessons and it is a life changer!

  78. Mujeeb

    As always, awesome work Dirk! Just one humble request. To aid quick learning and simplify the process, can the content be categorized in levels for ‘beginner through to expert’ in a ‘start to finish order’ as it could be just a tad bit overwhelming. A great resource nonetheless!

  79. Steiner Herbert

    Absolutely phantastic! Great design – very usable – ideal for me. Thanks a lot!!!

  80. Laurence

    Yep – it looks great & functions well

  81. Andy

    Hi Dirk, this new look is great. More clear and intresting! Thanks!!!

  82. Robert

    This is a great re-design. Thank you for all your work that has gone into these lessons, which I love: always well structured, clearly laid out, and what I particularly enjoy, is that you provide proper notation. This is such a fantastic resource, I am eternally grateful, back!

  83. Amia Franz

    I am influenced primarily by Prince funk, contemporary smooth jazz guitar George Benson, BB King and Eric Clapton would love emails focused on that . Also where could I get a review of my original solo playing? Looking forward to learning a lot on this amazing page of information!

  84. CharlieH

    Great looking facility. The lessons are fantastic and very stimulating. Is “The Way You Look Tonight” a possibility for a new piece?

  85. Dragonfly88

    Great! Very clear now, I would find anything I am interested in immediately.
    By the way: I thought I would understand something about drop2 chords. Looking into your lesson, I can dig in again! Many thanks indeed!

  86. Ron Beemster

    Excellent overview, and everything seems to be working OK. Thanks for all the work you’re putting in to this, Dirk, it’s a great resource.

  87. JMJ

    Excellent! Well thought out……Two thumbs up!

  88. Ger
