    Id like to learn more about jazz , thanks for the opportunity.

    1. Matthew Warnock says:

      Thanks for checking out my jazz guitar lessons and for entering the contest. Good luck!

      1. George Caboy says:

        My emails have been undeliverable for some reason, so I am using the “reply” link on one of your replies to someone else…sorry, but your other links for the contest do not seem to work (?). I also “Liked” your FB page.
        Thanks again for all your great lessons and congratulations of your success.


      2. Bill O'Brien says:

        I’d like to give you a long overdue THANK YOU for your wonderful and very informative “classes.” Your approach to theory and it’s application is so relaxed and yet so educational without making it feel like a advanced college level, nuclear fusion class. I’ve been playing/teaching for 34 years as a professional guitar and bass player, spanning many genres. Jazz by far is my favorite. So often the student struggles with basic concepts. I have to admit I have lovingly “borrowed” a few of your techniques in my own playing AND teaching, with much success. I enjoy your phrasing and paying style very much. In fact, a single phrase that you offer can easily become a several-classes spanning experience. I thank you for your dedication to the genre and it’s perpetuation. Jazz much live on.

        I live in New Jersey, USA. Back in the 1980′s/90′s , I had the unique and humbling opportunity to meet , play with and other times just watch in AWE, the great Tal Farlow. A towering, yet nicest/gentlest man there was. One of the GREATEST bebop/swing players there ever was, in my opinion. I learned so much from him. It was HIS playing that first exposed Jazz to me. I have never been the same since. :).

        You carry on in that tradition. I just want to thank you. Offering so much for free and still reserve enough to make a business out of something you LOVE. That’s true dedication to the art-form and shows your love of what you do! Thank you again.


    2. Jeff Goldstein says:

    1. Matthew Warnock says:

      Thanks for checking out my jazz guitar lessons and for entering the contest. Good luck man!

  31. douglas bence says:

    In the high and far off days, guitarists were very protective of what they did, reluctant to share the simplest lick unless they were certain that the player they were talking to couldn’t play it! This still holds true of Flamenco players in Spain. But the Internet mercifully changed most of that, the Internet and the way it was used by players like Matthew Warnock who freely share their knowledge and experience. As a result, playing standards are higher all round and everybody wins. And that’s what music, jazz and the guitar should be all about. Long may it continue and every success to Matt and others like him.

    1. Matthew Warnock says:

      Thanks for checking out my jazz guitar lessons and for entering the contest. Good luck man!

  32. J says:

    Thanks for all the well explained lessons Matt!

    I love the way you manage to make everything seem so simple and always place the music above the conept. Jazz teachers I have had in the past really took the enjoyment out of playing jazz for me due to their textbook thinking and lack of musical expression.

    Look forward to more great lessons.

    1. Matthew Warnock says:

      Thanks for checking out my jazz guitar lessons and for entering the contest. Good luck man!

As a retired high school teacher, I love to see an approach to teaching that reaches all levels of player. Congratulations on a job well done!

  124. Glenn Betcher says:

    Matt, I’ve been playing guitar for over 50 years, both classical and jazz, and you’ve managed to make things fresh. I applaud your innovation for using social media to reach that “hidden jazz market” that everyone wishes they could find. Good luck in all you do.

  141. Craig Hedrick says:

    There are some people who seem to think I have some level of guitar skill. They actually call me “guitarist.” I am a picker at best.
    I tell them all, if you want to “get jazzy with it” go see Matt!

    Good to see everything is fireing on all cylinders. Yours is one of the best stes around for those wanting to learn jazz and serious guitar playing. I always point players to yourmaterials as part of their development. You do the higher level teaching I rarely get to do as a guitar and bass teacher – mine is 80% beginners and young players.

  159. larry says:

    Matt, First of all congratulations on your two year anniversary. I have followed your on – line lessons since you started.

    Your bite-sized lessons and straightforward presentation reminds me of Kahn Academy. I find them valuable, thanks.

  207. Mike Zatirka says:

    I really appreciate the fact that you put up free lessons. Over th eyears, I’ve purchased many “Hot To” Guitar books that looked good in the store, bue whne you get them home and actually start working through them, they are a lot less than they seem.

    You obviously have a loyt of confidence in your teaching materials to give “free samples”. And that confidence appears well justified.

  208. christopher durney says:

    Hi Matt,greetings from New Zealand,thankyou for your great lessons which when mastered sound like real jazz rather than just another exercise.Cheers ,Christopher Durney.

At the moment I’m experimenting with the first of your George Benson licks just about everywhere – and there’s so much more…

  215. Glenn says:

  235. Jack says:

    Can’t tell you how clearly your lessons make the theory part of guitar seem. Play this, play that, sound tracks; all get connected in my 65 year old brain and make me and my old Guild T50 sound great!! (In my mind)
    Thanks for your interest in us, the “Maybe Someday” players. You keep us in the learning loop. You’re to be applauded!!

I downloaded them last year too; but this year I was actually able to get through the chord changes in half time and sometimes up to speed. I just wish I had enough extra time to devote to the guitar,

    Matt, I can’t believe how hard you work at this. I’m also incredibly impressed by the quality of your materials. I’ve been playing various styles of guitar music for over 40 years. I have also been a guitar teacher for nearly that long. Jazz was (is) the final frontier for me. Your web site has been a great help as I try to sort out what to practice and how to use what I’ve learned to make better music. I have also been really impressed with the way you present jazz concepts. You’ve been a huge help to me as a player, and also as a teacher. Thank you for all you’ve done to help us out. Blessings.

  312. Simon says:

    After quite a few years of playing it amazing how much just a few weeks of practice using the tips on your website have improved my playing and understanding of jazz guitar. Also the 251 Chords app is excellent. Cheers.

  331. Ariel says:

    Dear Matt,

    Thanks for sharing your wisdom! I learned a long time ago that teaching is the true learning and that all the I’m-better-than-you-nonsense is just that, nonsense. When we share we all are elevated and become more.

    All the best!

  344. Steve says:

    Thanks for all of your information and motivation!

  345. Steve Vetter says:

    Following you takes guts Matt because you make us come face to face with our weaknesses and even laziness (yeah, I said it!) Your suggestions and tips and lessons require hard work and dedication and sometimes it’s fun to just “blow.” However, to get anywhere in jazz guitar we must take to heart that which you preach. We just have to go watch you play a song to see the rewards of all that honest, hard work. Sigh…….I do work very hard at this stuff and it does pay off, but you are a monster dedication and application. It’s great to see it in action!

  346. Bjorn says:

    Hi Matt,

    Congrats on 2 years, I wish you the best in your future endeavors. I took a Jazz course at Berklee as part of a cert class. Life got in the way but I enjoyed the Jazz class and was going to take a couple more, but decided it was too pricey. I am glad I found your site and plan to use your 30days book and forum to improve my playing. Thanks
