Jazz guitar instruction from the masters of jazz instruction.

Learn the essential tools and skills for playing jazz guitar.

The accompanying recording provides demonstrations of key technical concepts with play-along tracks to help you develop phrasing and location concepts on the fingerboard. It also provides examples to train your ear with call-and-response exercises similar to what you might be asked to perform at an audition or jury.
