    Hello everyone,

    So I’ve heard someone’s rendition of Georgia on My Mind on jazz guitar, and I must say I’m absolutely blown away, it’s beautiful. I want play that kind of music. Prior to that, I was not really into jazz, but now (as you can guess) I am.


    Okay, so I played guitar for a few years now. I know basic music theory, chords, a few scales (pentatonic, and major), and a few tricks. The thing is, I started to play the guitar because of punk mobdro.bio/ luckypatcher.tips/ kodi.bio/ music, then hard rock, so jazz is a lot, if not entirely, intimidating to me. I know most techniques on guitar except everything shred (not my thing). I know that there are tons of material in the internet, I just don’t know where to start. I’m on the intermediate level, I guess.


    Tl;dr: can someone point me to internet materials on how to start playing jazz; what are the fundamental theories, chords, scales, etc. that I need to know; what are some easy songs to get started with; how do I/you practice?


    Thanks and I hope you guys reply!
