    Some that immediately come to mind are as follows: Barney Kessel's videos with Rumark, Joe Pass Jazz Lines, and Emily Remler's 2 Hot Licks tapes.

    Below are links to the first 2, as Emily's were taken off YouTube due to copyright.

    Enjoy.

    Out of all the ones I've gotten to see over the years, Robert Conti's jazz guitar lesson DVDs are my favorites.

    His material is easy to assimilate and fun to work with.

    I recently got the mymusicmasterclass videos on solo guitar by Bruce Forman and Andy Brown, they are very good.

    I've stumbled upon those Bruce Forman ones too, but still haven't pulled the trigger for whatever reason. The one that caught my eye the most was his "Bebop Guitar" video. Even the preview had some nice nuggets about articulation and slurring. Very cool.

    I think Bruce is a great teacher, he has a very engaging personality and really breaks things down into simple concepts (he also has an amazing ability to play jazz guitar while he’s talking!)

    I also got his ‘learning tunes’ video, also very good.

    Literally just bought that one lol; seems very good so far. Also, as an aside, thank you for the Jim Mullen performance you posted on your YouTube. I've had that video liked before and now I see that your it's OP. Small world

    Thanks, yes I had just bought a new camcorder after my old one had been defunct for a few years. The first thing I did with it was to film Jim Mullen at that outdoor gig in Tunbridge Wells.

    It was after that I started making my own YouTube clips, before that I had no way of making a video!

    I'm a fan of TrueFire; have you checked them out? The annual pass is a very good deal, especially if you have a lot of time to explore.

    Yes, the Emily Remler ones that got taken off youtube immedietly came to mind when I read the title of the thread.


    Good that youtube stays on top of the copyright issues so that Emily (and other artists) gets a fair pay for her creative work

    Sheryl Bailey's 'Bebop Flow' video on MikesMasterclasses was a real "light bulb" moment for me.

    I'm also a big fan of the excellent content that MyMusicMasterclass has been releasing in the last couple of years - the videos from Bruce Forman, Roni Ben-Hur, Pasquale Grasso, Brad Shepik and Adam Rogers are real favourites.

    Generally, I watch live performances. But I do have a couple of instructionals one is Frank Gambale No More Modes Mystery (or something like that) it is amazing what Gambale knows.

    I enjoy Pat Martino books and I can find examples of some of the "activities" that he does on YouTube to help l me get through the book when I'm kind of stuck.

    I like watching Tim Lerch and I wish there were better Tim Green videos out there.

    I like watching Bruce Foreman and I wish there was more instructional videos out there by him as well.

    My tastes changed from Fusion to more straight ahead and that's when I got into Martino I also like watching Chet Baker DVDs, I like listening to trumpet players for the most part moreso than saxophonists.

    Thank you for this. The whole "play the music within you" topic is great. Barney, Emily, and Joe touch upon it as well. Heavy stuff.

    How have I been on YouTube so long and not stumble upon this monster you posted at some point? It makes you wonder what other monster players are hiding there, waiting to be discovered...Thanks for this.

    Hi there,
    I like the youtube video lessons made by Sandra Sherman from Vienna in Austria. They are easy to understand even for jazz guitar beginners like me to learn some standards, combing and soloing.


    Rob MacKillop is an awesome guitar player and he did a great job with his Mickey Baker Guitar Volume One video lessons.


    A big thank you from my side Sandra and Rob for your work and also because all your video lessons are for free.

    For beginners? Would any of these be a good fit for someone that is not an intermediate guitar player?

    You might want to check out Frank Vignola's Truefire channel (subscription $10 a month). He has a whole section for beginner's.

    Oooooh, did you all see this in your email inbox from TrueFire:



    I bought Henry Johnson and Sheryl Baily's Trading Solos--I think it's an interesting idea. I learned more from these courses than most of the other stuff I have from Truefire.

    That said, Barry Greene's only Truefire course might be the best find for jazz on Truefire:



    On Mike's Masterclasses, Steve Herberman can't be beat:

    Mimi Fox has several TrueFire courses that are stellar. JamPlay is also excellent.

    Jake Reichbart has a rich catalog of lessons. Many of them are on a single tune, but even with them you can learn a lot of stuff to generalize to other tunes. He also has DVDs on theory and technique.

    He has a ton of knowledge, and doing his lessons is like sipping from a fire hose. They take time.

    Many other courses give bite sized servings to practice. The student feels good because these are easy to achieve. Jake's are not. They are deep and require full attention and integration into your playing.

    I have been doing JamPlay lessons for some time. They are very decent and are not stressful. Conti's are also well structured and will push you along. Guitar College is excellent also. Jake's are very rich and challenging. Everyone should try at least one. It is essential to be humbled from time to time if we are to grow.

    Took some time before this came up.... Frank's Jazz Studio channel is a great resource that he keeps adding to every month - highly recommended!

    I like Frank Vignola's video style; I've been a member of the jazz studio since it started and I have probably purchased a dozen it so of his dedicated courses over the years. Even though he doesn't play 7 string I have found his content very easy to learn, use and adapt for the 7. He's been my go-to since I relocated and lost my 7 string teacher. I haven't done a private lesson with him yet, but Mark Rhodes has had a good experience. Just my opinion.
