Hey there! Thanks for coming to my website and for checking out all of the info to be found here. I put this site together because there was a lot of important information about how to play the jazz guitar that I simply could not find any good answers to or methods on the internet. Many of the players who teach (they are not teachers) do there best with a piece of the pie but even the greatest players may not be able to share "how to do" information in a way that builds and yields measurable progress in reasonable time. The lessons and information on this page are tried and true. I have been the professor of jazz guitar at the Juilliard School and the Manhattan School of music for more than 30 years. That alone should have you interested. Students around the world have paid up to $40,000 a year to get access to what you are looking at for free or paying a small amount. If you follow the lessons and ideas found here. Your playing will get better in every way. You will find your musical voice and realize that a lot of the difficulty in mastering jazz guitar comes from poor information and application of the information that is available all over the internet. The only thing that you have to decide is will you try, will you make the effort?  I suggest that you go to the tips page and read what the elements of jazz guitar, in fact jazz mastery, are. That is a good start. Then pick up your guitar, open your mind and heart, and dive in. I'll be here to support you along the way. I'll offer feedback, answer questions, have a lot of special content that won't be available anywhere else, and do all that I can to help you grow musically. So, what do you say? Lets do this. See you inside.

With gratitude and appreciation,
