One of the most important aspects of a successful practice routine is studying classic jazz lines and phrases.While learning licks will get those lines under your fingers, many books fall flat but stopping there with their explanation of jazz phrases.

To get the most out of your jazz vocabulary study, you need to understand not only what notes are being played, but why they sound the way they do. This allows you to get into the minds of legendary jazz improvisers, as well as build your own great-sounding lines in real time.

The Essential Jazz Lines book series teaches you just that, classic licks and every concept used to build those lines on the guitar.

I have purchased all six of these books (anatomy of a lick). They contain excellent material. I eagerly await the next volume becoming available.

Many thanks to Matt for his work in putting these together.

Great, I purchased and downloaded ebook few minutes ago. I have many Matt’s ebook. They all helped a me lot to understand and play this beautiful and difficult music called Jazz. And my number one is Wes! (very good also the ebook about wes’style and books about jazz blues, I have all two!). Greetings from Italy!

Mike Ranfft

This is a great well written study on a Joe Pass lick. What I really like is that Matt explains and gets you practicing all the elements of it, so here you are working through triads, blues scales, scale patterns, enclosures etc. And really in-depth, so that you can fully integrate this to expand your own playing. If you’re like me and want to practice different elements of jazz in an accessible and organic way this really works!
