Welcome to Play Jazz Guitar 7: Style Variations for intermediate to late Intermediate students of Jazz guitar.

One of the qualities that attracts all of us to the guitar is the virtually infinite range of styles and techniques that are possible on the instrument. Having a grasp on a wide variety of styles and techniques not only broadens your musicality, it opens the door to many more playing opportunities with other musicians. You’ll gain more clarity on the instrument overall and expressing yourself on it will become a richer experience. The video guitar lessons in this core course will diversify your skill set and help take your playing to the next level.
Play Jazz Guitar 7: Style Variations is organized into 5 sections. In the first section, you’ll explore some serious jazz rock with Carl Verheyen. A taste of Smooth Jazz from Paul Brown is featured in the second section. Section 3 passes on a versatile collection of jazz funk chord studies from Brad Carlton. In Section 4, Fareed Haque gives you a taste of acid jazz. David Blacker rounds the course out with a series of swing blues studies, in the final section.
When you’ve completed the lessons here in Style Variations, you’ll find more lessons focused on technique variations in Style Diversity, also a Play Jazz Guitar 7 core course.
The educators demonstrate all of the key examples over jam tracks (where and when applicable) to simulate a real-world application, in a musical context. All of the key examples are also tabbed and notated for your practice, reference and study purposes.
