Jazz Guitar eBook Bundles

This month would have marked the legendary jazz guitarist Wes Montgomery's 95th birthday. And maybe he’d still be laying down sweet jazz lines if he hadn’t left this world too early at the age of 45. On the morning of June 15, 1968, Wes awoke and told his wife that he didn't feel very well. He soon collapsed, dying within minutes...and the world lost a truly unique musical voice.

While Wes may be gone, we still celebrate his musical legacy, especially jazz guitarists such as yourself.

In honor of Wes' birthday, this month we’re doing an eBook Sale. For one week only, all of our best-selling eBooks and lesson packages can be yours for 50% off.

That’s a lifetime’s worth of jazz guitar educational material for a fraction of the price you’d normally pay.

Don’t wait, take advantage of this sale and celebrate Wes, jazz guitar, and take your playing to the next level today.

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.
