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.

"Laid out beautifully, simple to understand (I'm an intermediate player but very much a beginner in the jazz world), concepts are explained logically and the exercises look fantastic."
"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."
My love of guitar has allowed me to teach over 7000 jazz guitar lessons and play over 2000 gigs in 8 countries. In 2011 I launched Matt Warnock Guitar, which has become one of the top guitar learning sites online. Guitar has been in my life for 20 years, and every day I’m glad I found this wondering instrument. I want to share this love of guitar with you. You never know where you'll end up.
