  • Learn To Play Jazz Guitar





    I have always been passionate about Jazz Guitar and although I wouldn't consider myself to be an out and out Jazz Guitarist it's a discipline that I find myself coming back to again and again.

    I studied Jazz at the London Centre for Contemporary Music and hold regular Jazz workshops for musicians here in the UK, and seeing as I have now built up quite a number of Jazz students both through Skype and here in London, I thought that I had better devote a section to Jazz guitar on this site.

    It is important to be noted that Jazz is a lifetime study and as the Guitar4Free Jazz Syllabus starts to evolve my intention is to list here some of the methods and techniques that I have found particularly useful to me and to my students over the years. Even if Jazz isn't your main discipline on Guitar the understanding and variety of musical techniques, theory, rhythm, and expression that come from studying Jazz will be of enormous value to your overall musical development.

  • Jazz Guitar Scales

    The Study of Scales should be a fundamental part of your practice routine, no matter what level of guitarist you are or what your discipline is. Scales present the whole spectrum of music to us and how all of the notes work in terms of their relationship to each other, their location on your instrument, how they sound to our ears and of course as technical exercises for our hands.

  • Jazz Blues Progressions

    Blues Music takes its roots in the deep south of the USA at the end of the 19th century and its influences from European, African and Latin music. The Blues has been massively influential on Jazz music. Almost every one of the Jazz Superstars from Miles Davis to Count Basie has incorporated Blues numbers in their repertoire and contributed to its form.
