Here are some short free guitar lessons covering various (mostly jazz related) topics. There are lessons covering jazz harmony, improvisation and transcriptions of famous recordings (solos and melodies/chord changes)
FREE GUITAR LESSONS
This page offers you some sample free guitar lessons discussing (mostly) jazz related topics. Here you’ll find material covering jazz improvisation, jazz harmony, chord development, vocabulary and rhythmic awareness all adapted from my Skype Jazz Guitar Lessons.
These free guitar lessons may also be of interest to other (non-jazz) guitarists who don’t wish to play jazz regularly, but who are interested in expanding their understanding of jazz harmony and improvisational concepts etc. I hope you find these lessons useful. Alongside the jazz orientated topics, I also have some posts here on other areas of interest to me such as guitar tones, equipment and more generic musical conversations. I hope you enjoy them anyway.
These free guitar lessons may also be useful in giving you an understanding of the type of material I can cover in my Skype Jazz Guitar Lessons, although please be aware these are mostly very short articles. Purchased Skype lessons are much more in depth and with considerably more detail and explanation of the musical concepts.
To open the various free guitar lessons, just click on either the photo or the text below and the lesson will open in a new window. In most cases I have also included a downloadable PDF (or image) for the material discussed in the lesson and there are many links to Soundslice versions of the presented material. I will be adding to this page most weeks so please check back for more posts as they become available. Please also feel free to share these posts on social media as you see fit.
