Why Use the Bb Blues to Learn Jazz Guitar?
The blues in the key of Bb is arguably the most important song-form for any jazz musician to learn. Your first steps into jazz guitar will take you into the Bb Blues to learn how to improvise with two pentatonic scales, comp using powerful "shell" chords, and phrase melodies effectively.
Your FIRST Real Jazz Standard: Ladybird
Rhythmically catchy and harmonically complex, "Ladybird" is a short jazz standard you'll tackle in order to develop your newly-learned foundations. On this standard, you will learn the chordscale approach to improv, as well as a freer way to comp with your extended shell chords. Finally, you'll learn a beautifully rich chord melody that you'll love playing and improving upon!

"Improve Your Playing,
or We Don't Get Paid!"
"I just love Comping 101 and have gone all in with Unlimited Membership now. Your instructional videos are dead on. Not too much talking and I get to play fairly quickly. And the support material that I can print and follow is just great. I wish there were more hours in a day to practice and follow your great course material. I really feel that you are my personal guitar teacher."
- Henrik Saaby L., Denmark
"[Improv 101] is a true '101' course in that it has given us the basic foundations of many aspects of Jazz improvisation. Each step of the course from learning the arpeggios to ['All The Things You Are'] to practicing the blues with you opened up windows of possibilities that drove us to further explore the parts."
- Richard Janosy, China
"I am enjoying the Chord Melody Crash Course a lot. I like your approach and find it helpful. You have a knack for making practical connections between different aspects of chord melody which no one else seems to do. In your 'Misty' arrangements you use different voicings for the same chord in a number of places to demonstrate the flexibility of chord voice selections, and that is EXTREMELY helpful and instructive - good thinking!
