I’ve spent so much time learning scales and arpeggios, then when I solo, I hate my playing. What a total waste of time!

The biggest challenge you face when studying bebop guitar (that keeps you in a practice rut and not seeing results) is:

Soloing with scales and arpeggios only to sound “correct” and boring. You’re missing that “special sauce” that makes bebop sound like bebop.

Sound familiar?

Learning bebop 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 bebop guitar learning experiences?

  1. You know what real bebop solos sound like, but you have no clue how to create those sounds on your guitar.
  2. You’ve tried learning authentic bebop guitar, but the exercises are so freaking boring you hate playing, so you see zero results in your playing.
  3. You waste so much precious practice time searching for effective bebop lessons that you don’t have time to play your guitar.

Over the past 25 years, I've played over 2,500 gigs, taught over 8,000 private lessons, and given workshops all over the world to guitarists of all levels.

I’ve found that most online lessons and teachers overcomplicate bebop guitar, making it difficult to learn with boring exercises that produce exactly zero results.

This is 100% not the case with the Minor Bebop Scale Starter Kit.

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

With the Minor Bebop Starter Kit, you benefit from my over 25 years of jazz guitar experience, so you know exactly what to practice for immediate results.


3 Ways the Minor Bebop Starter Kit Improves Your Playing:

1. Remove the Mystery Behind Bebop - It’s easy to hear a masterful player and think, “Wow, that sounds impossible for me to play, bummer.” This doesn’t have to be the case. This course pulls back the curtains and demystifies bebop with fun and engaging exercises.

2. Learn How to Turn Any Bebop Scale Into a Cool Line- When you learn scales your solos sound like scales. Makes sense. But, that’s not the goal. This course teaches you how to turn scales into killer lines now.

3. Sound Like a True Jazz Guitarist Today - One of the most frustrating parts about learning to play jazz is that you learn all the “correct” material yet never sound like jazz. This course cuts through all the B.S. and gets you sounding like a real jazzer today. .

"Matt's online lessons are a great resource for any jazz guitarist …

"from beginner to pro. Matt is simply a great teacher and player."

Who is this Course NOT For?

As your Creative Penatonics 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.
