Watch the Jazz Blues 1 online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Blues Survival Guide: Rhythm Edition

There are many classic jazz blues tunes to check out to start digging into the style. Some of my favorites are "Straight No Chaser", "Blue Monk", Billies Bounce, Sonny Moon For Two, Freddie The Freeloader, Bessie's Blues, Now's The Time, Tenor Madness, and Watermelon Man to name but a few. I highly suggest picking up a jazz fake book that contains these tunes. There are some amazing apps out there that are bands in a box, so you can play along with tunes. We can use any number of streaming music sources to listen to the jazz classics.
