"I have dreamt of this book existing for years — a thoughtful and clear exploration of what it means to dive into jazz guitar when you already have a background in other styles of music.”
— Julian Lage

The ultimate jazz guitar reference book!

Contains detailed explanations and exercises on virtually everything a guitarist needs to start playing jazz with others:

  • different categories of chord voicings
  • comping tips for being in a rhythm section
  • scale and chord construction
  • charts for classic jazz tunes to work on
  • developing solo chops by using riffs and pieces of familiar melodies
  • ways to approach practicing jazz
  • right hand picking techniques
  • overall jazz theory ...and much more!

    "Randy Vincent is an extraordinary musician who also happens to play the guitar. With this book, he gives a real life approach to voicing chords on the instrument that will allow both the student and the professional a clear way to illuminate harmonies in the most sensible and transparent way. With almost every student I have had I have stressed the issue of getting the most mileage out of the least notes whenever possible. This book lays it out in clear and concise terms.”
    — Pat Metheny

    — Jim Hall

Randy is masterful in breaking down so many topics that often feel so daunting and inaccessible, making them approachable, enjoyable, and furthermore, helping the student to create a foundation for mastery within the jazz domain.”
    — Julian Lage
