Versions that no one has heard before - and you made up on the spot.

Welcome to Jazz for the Curious Guitarist!  If you are ready to finally learn how to play real jazz guitar, then this course is for you.  I will take you from the very beginning to show you the basics of guitar playing through to a high level of jazz in which you'll have knowledge of all chords that exist, basic & advanced scales & arpeggios, rhythm, and music & guitar theory.

I start the course assuming that you don't play guitar at all.  I assume you are a complete beginner.  The first section of the course is all about teaching you the guitar basics to get you ready for the jazz lessons.  Every lesson video in this course has PDF attachments in the additional resources tabs.  Some lessons have multiple attachments.

The next five sections are the jazz lessons.  They are: Beginner, Novice, Intermediate, Advanced, & Expert sections.  The lessons are cumulative (each lesson builds on the previous lesson.)  We will work extensively on chords, scales, arpeggios, rhythm, music theory, and various jazz concepts.

Any kind of six-string guitar will work well for this course - electric guitar, acoustic guitar, or classical guitar. 

It's well-known that many of the best guitarists in the world are jazz guitarists, so we have a lot of work to do, but I will get you there as quickly as I can!  I know exactly what you need to learn.  I know exactly how to teach you.  

I'm excited that you're here!  The world needs more jazz guitar players. 

This is going to be a lot of fun!  Let's begin.

The Jazz Chord Base is a system to accompany jazz tunes in a way that will let you understand the chords quick and easy. The course is filled with explanations of the chords, many exercises and every once in a while Stefan tells funny stories of his life as a musician.

All the exercises are demonstrated on video, include the lead sheets and come with files to use in iRealBook (an app (not included in the course) that plays a band on your computer with bass, drums and piano in your desired practising tempo). And if you don't own iRealPro: each exercise has an audiofile for download to play along.

Learn to find your way on the fretboard in a logical system and start playing these cool jazz chords from the scratch.

Completing the course will make you a great accompanist either as a single player with a singer/soloist or in a band. Also included is: Playing Chord solos and playing with a conductor.

Here are some statements from guitarists, who have taken the course:

Are you a guitarist who has always wanted to study jazz but found many of the methods on the market either too confusing or based around concepts that needed to be navigated before ever playing the first note? Have you been looking for a way to take your existing knowledge and skill set on the instrument and apply it to playing in the jazz style? If you have said yes to either question (or both), this course, Foundations of Jazz Guitar, is for you.

The Foundations of Jazz Guitar course was developed to meet the needs of the guitarist looking to take those first steps playing jazz. This will be accomplished through developing the player’s knowledge and proficiency in three areas: major scales, 7th chords, and arpeggios. Each topic will be discussed and later demonstrated on the guitar. Each lesson will have a number of supporting PDF files and backing tracks that will assist you with taking the topics discussed from the paper and to the fingerboard. The backing tracks are to used with the numerous exercises and etudes designed to help you gain proficiency in each area. The goal is that by the time you complete the course, you are ready to  to take those first steps playing this music as well as being ready to take on more advanced ideas dealing with harmony and improvisation.

So, if  you are an ‘accomplished hobbyist’, college music student, seasoned professional, or something in between, this course is for you. All you need is a guitar, a desire to learn, and an open mind. I look forward to working with you in your journey through this course.

This course includes

  • 39 Lectures/Videos

  • 100 + pages of corresponding PDF lesson and bonus materials.

  • 180 Backing Tracks

  • 1+ Hour of Video

  • Keeping track of each videos you have already watched is super easy with Complete and In Progress buttons
