The Quickest Way To Learn Jazz On Guitar

Jazz is one of the deepest and most complex genres of music.

Learning jazz on the guitar can be intimidating. Where do we start?!

How can we go about playing jazz guitar, in real-life situations, without it taking years and years before we can begin having fun applying what we're learning?

Scales, modes of scales, melodic patterns, arpeggios, standard tune melodies, music theory, complex chords, sight reading, rhythmic work, ear training, technique . . . 😱

We can work on all the right things, but still feel totally stuck.

We can put the consistent practice time in and still feel like we’re not making any progress.

It’s so frustrating!

The solution is to have a focused goal in one practice category.

The quickest and most rewarding way to learn how to play jazz on the guitar is to learn how to interpret ANY chord symbol. The good news is that you can accomplish this using just seven chord shapes!

Here's the First Step to Take

It sounds too good to be true. It sounds too easy. “These chords must not be the real chords that professionals use” you might think. In fact, these chord shapes are exactly what professionals use all the time!

Imagine being able to go to that jam session, or play with your friends, or accompany yourself while singing a classic jazz tune, feeling confident that you can play ANY chord that comes up.

Never get stuck on chord symbols you don’t know ever again!

In “Seven Shapes Away” you’ll not only learn how to play any jazz chord, but you’ll learn the theory of how each chord is constructed.

This method is simple, powerful, and provides results you can use right away.

Before worrying about complicated licks or the modes of melodic minor, do yourself a favor and make sure that you can play every chord type in their most essential form.

🎸 NOTE: Seven Shapes Away is a fantastic preliminary and/or supplementary course to the Jazz Comping Mastery courses.

Five star rating for Jared as the best guitar teacher I have had!" - Scott S. (student)

“Jared's approach to teaching theory is very accessible and is easily the most practical thing I've ever learned as a guitar player. Jared taught me how to see and use chord inversions, which has greatly improved my familiarity with the fretboard, and allows me to now play in more interesting and creative ways.” - Evan W. (student)

“I’ve been studying with Jared for years and I always thought that he would make the perfect online teacher. He has a way of taking seemingly complex musical subjects and simplifying them into a few rules and principles that clarify a vast amount of information. - Linda C. (student)

“Through studying jazz guitar with Jared I have been able to achieve many long term goals including making my own music, improvising/playing with other musicians, and increasing my theoretical mastery of the guitar/music as a whole. As I continue to improve and reach more musical goals, I will be buying these instructional videos and am very excited to benefit from his teaching methods in a new format, one that is highly visual/interactive and can be reviewed at my leisure.” - Steve M.
