"I’m ready to learn how to play full jazz songs on guitar. But, I waste all my time on confusing lessons or searching YouTube without finding a single lesson to help me. It’s so frustrating!”


The biggest problem you face when learning jazz guitar (that keeps your playing stuck in a rut and not seeing results) is:


Wasting your time with confusing lessons that teach you useless theory without ever teaching you how to play authentic, real, jazz guitar songs and concepts.


Sound familiar? Learning jazz guitar can be a challenging experience, especially if you don’t have an organized, proven method of study to guide you.


Have you had any of these common jazz guitar learning experiences?


  1. You spend hours looking for jazz guitar lessons online, only to find confusing, incomplete, and frustrating lessons.
  2. You have learned scales, chords, and arpeggios, but never play full jazz songs in your studies.
  3. You want to jam with other musicians, but you don’t know any jazz standards to play.


Over the past 25 years, I've played over 2500 gigs, taught over 8000 private lessons, and given workshops all over the world to guitarists of all levels.


I’ve found that many online courses and teachers overcomplicate jazz guitar. This makes it difficult to learn with boring exercises that produce exactly zero results.


This is 100% not the case with Jazz Standards Volume 2.


In this course pack, I walk you step-by-step through my proven learning method guaranteed to teach you authentic jazz guitar skills and concepts.


With Jazz Standard Vol. 2, you benefit from my 25+ years of jazz guitar experience, so you know exactly what to practice for immediate results.

Who is this Course Pack For?


This course is designed for guitarists looking to increase their jazz comping skills by learning the exact chord concepts legendary players use on records.


It's for guitarists who:

  • Have tried to learn jazz guitar in the past but found it too confusing.
  • Want to add new, essential chords to your vocabulary.
  • Want to level up your jazz soloing chops.
  • Want to learn jazz standards the right way, once and for all.
  • Wants to have fun in the practice room while learning jazz guitar.


I've been studying, teaching, and playing jazz guitar for 25 years and I still find new ways to comp and chord solo.

I want to share with you everything I've learned about how to play jazz guitar so you can reach your musical goals quickly.

 

Who is this Course NOT For?


As your jazz guitar guide, my job is to keep this course positive, encouraging, and welcoming for EVERY guitarist who joins. That’s why this course isn’t for you if…

  • You’re looking for a “Guitar God quick” fix. There’s no such thing as an overnight guitarist. This program is about building a long-term relationship with the guitar that leads with enjoyment and real growth – not hype or impossible promises.

  • You’re not a team player. This isn’t American Idol for guitar, it’s not a competition. The MWG Community is a safe environment for new and experienced guitarists to support and learn from each other. This is for team players who encourage growth in their fellow guitarists – not trolls who heckle their peers.

  • You’re a Negative Nelly. If you like to complain, tear down, or argue with other guitarists just for the sake of it, this program isn’t for you. We’re about encouragement, welcoming new players, and positive, constructive feedback. No negative energy or comments allowed in this program.
