Watch the Understanding Jazz online guitar lesson by Bruce Arnold from Jazz Guitar for Beginners

Jazz has a deep history and some of the greatest musicians have helped create its legacy. It is beyond this course to give you a complete history so I recommend that you get a book on the history of jazz to get a better understanding.

As I've mentioned in the videos its important to start understanding not only the specifics of which notes are used in a song, chord or scale but also the organization of the music which includes considerations of form, solos, rhythm and style.
