Great book, really improves your skills!!!

Ruben torres

I'm a newbie to jazz but I learn a lot already!

It has helped me to add structure to my solos. The only problem I had was downloading to iPhone so I can study anywhere.

Matt and Dirk

Thanks, just sent you an email to fix the iphone issue. Shouldn't be a problem. Cheers.


Well, first of all, I am not a guitar player. I play bass and piano. However, I find these exercises extremely useful. They can be used to train either my piano or bass students. Melodic lines are also very good, I use them as a "seed" for either riffing or improvising or even (after a slight revision) to construct somewhat elaborate walking bass lines.

All in all, I am very satisfied with the entire package!

Steve E

This book is very focused and I like the fact that it has 3 levels of ability. This enables you come in at your level and then progress. I highly recommend this book and particularly agree with comments others have made ie I wish I'd had this book years ago.


This is a great learning tool! I love the backing tracks and have been trying the new patterns and ideas all weekend. Looking forward to day 3!

vincenzo varasano

Simple in its clarity!


The book is perfectly fine! Especially how to make guitar licks with the bebop language, is an instructive chapter for most players.


30 Days to Better Jazz Guitar is a fantastic series of lessons, expertly put together, that any guitarist can benefit from.

Jazz and more specifically Jazz improvisation can quickly become an overly complex and frankly daunting subject, that if explained in the wrong way , can put players off for life. No problem of that here. Each area of study is engaging and arranged in such a way that player progression and enjoyment are unavoidable.

Congratulations and many thanks.


I`m missing a section specific for the II-V-I and what scales to be used and a bit of explanation about how to survive chord changes. For the rest, the book is good!


I am afraid that I am not as quick in learning as all of you boys & girls, but "30 Days to Better Jazz Guitar" is definitely become the reference to learning to play guitar, at least for this old rocker!

Tamara Milivojevic

The book is most useful and I strongly suggest it to both beginners and professionals. 30 day is too much, once you have it in your hands you don't let go.

Ken Andrews

I Wish I had this years ago its the best laid out easy to understand and so much easy ways to express yourself ways to play. Gives you a great foundation for developing your Jazz. Matt is a great teacher and knows how to make you successful. Thank you so much its going to be very hard to top this one Matt. Thanks Ken


Wish I'd had this 30 years ago!

Livio Cherchi

Utilissimo libro che progressivamente conduce l'allievo a notevoli risultati. Ogni paragrafo è ben strutturato e di facile comprensione, complimenti Mister Matt.

(Very useful book that gradually leads the student to remarkable results. Each section is well structured and easy to understand, compliments)

Dave Biliter

Easy to follow and understand. The best Jazz lessons I have found.

Mark M.

Great book. Easy to read and comprehend.


I completely agree with the positive comments here. I have the first edition also and this latest is a worthy successor.Well thought out and written and
an absolute bargain at this asking price. A very useful tool in the armoury for those of us who haven't yet achieved Wes' status or competency.


Hi guys.

This is a winner. I find that it forced me to concentrate on one concept at a time in my practice routine and although I am only on day 6 I can see a marked improvement in my own playing. I ended up jamming over Summertime (and many other pieces) for about three hours yesterday. Now for day 7. Great stuff.


I have the first edition from a few months ago. Is it worth my getting the 2nd edition?

Dirk and Matt

Hi George. Yes it is a totally new book. Please check your email as there is a coupon going out today or tomorrow for people who bought the first edition. If you don't get that email us and we'll get the coupon to you that way. Cheers.


Matt is an outstanding teacher and “30 Days to Better Jazz Guitar” is a great guide to a difficult study.
