The best way to learn jazz is to learn to play jazz standards.
This is because songs teach you musical concepts and your favorite tunes at the same time.
With this approach, you learn essential jazz concepts and a song to play for yourself, friends, or at a jam session at the same time.
That's a massive win-win in the practice room.
While working on standards is essential, it's hard to know where to start when learning tunes.
This is where the Wave Premium Study Guide comes into play.
Everything you need to master your favorite tunes is found in this essential, fun, and engaging study guide.
Chords, voice leading, soloing concepts, authentic Brazilian rhythms, and more are all ready for you to grab your guitar and dive in.

"Just went through videos for the first time. This a great format. For me it is much more effective than just the study guide! Way to go!!! Very nice to have the track and pdf right there to practice after viewing lesson."
"Have been playing guitar for 40 years and when I play jazz it would be something that I would mimic from other artist. Matt’s study guides break everything down and analyze in away that is easy to understand. Using ideas from the guides I feel my playing is getting more original and it’s more fun than just copying licks from recordings. If I have questions or need help Matt has always been in touch. A great venue for learning jazz guitar."
