30 Days to Better Jazz Guitar Comping
Developing a strong comping and chord vocabulary is just as important as learning licks and scales. But with there been so many chords and comping techniques, knowing how to study them effectively can be tough.
With many books simply just being a thesaurus of chords with little to no application or explanation, it leaves most guitarists confused, resulting in them forgetting half of the chords learnt on the first page by the time they get half way through the book.
Because of this, I decided to put together a 30 day project in the summer of 2012, where each day for 1 month I posted a range of lessons covering many different comping and chord techniques.
Although, this was only a 30-day project, the aim was to give jazz guitarists a thorough understanding, application, and dictionary of chords and comping techniques to open up their ears and minds to new possibilities on the instrument, as well as provide practical material that guitarists can use after the month is over.
After running this series in the summer of 2012 and getting an extremely positive response and comments about the lessons I was encouraged to put together an ebook based on the series so that each lesson can be bought for for the low price of $14.99 US which is less than 50 cents per lesson.
The book features all of the original 30 lessons, all of which have been expanded and edited. There’s more than 20 pages of extra material and explanations, as well as accompanying audio and bonus lessons that have never before been published on the this site.

What People Are Saying About 30 Days to Better Jazz Guitar
“This book is great for someone who is comfortable playing rock and blues type stuff, but has been intrigued with all those strange jazz chords. Or maybe you find yourself digging some stuff that turns out to be labeled ”jazz”, but thought it was way beyond your skills when you first attempted to learn it. (“How the hell do I play a G7b9b13 chord!?!”)
I found the progression of the lessons built logically upon one another. And I was finding myself learning something with almost every lesson, even those that covered stuff I thought I already knew. But though the concept and basic examples of each lesson can be understood within one practice session. Most lesson will require a good deal more time to get to the point where you truly know the material and can apply it. But this is true of any method of learning jazz guitar. Jamie’s, lesson a day approach does help make the whole topic seem a lot less overwhelming, and makes it easy to set your own pace.” – Guitarify
