Watch the 30 Country Jazz Licks online guitar lesson by Jason Loughlin from 30 Country Jazz Licks You MUST Know

Thanks for checking out this course! I was happy to have the opportunity to share this music from a great era for electric guitar and American music. It's my favorite music to play and primarily the music I write and play with my band The String Gliders.

I hope you've enjoyed working through these licks and learning the history of all these fantastic players. Go find these records. There is so much joy in them. I've included many resources to seek this music out. I've put together a YouTube playlist, reference books, sources for finding recordings, and a list of the greats associated with this style. Go to If you'd like to study with me privately, hear my music or my band The String Gliders. Also, I have downloadable lessons and transcriptions on my site. Please sign up to my mailing list or like my Facebook fan page for updates, special offers, and to see when and where I'm performing.
