Hi Rich, how about doing something on Charlie Christian's style.
I'd love a lesson ( a series?) on how Charlie incorporates all those marvelous licks into an entire solo.

I'm sure such a lesson would be very popular as Charlie's music has influenced so many different styles from Western Swing to Bebop to Jump Blues, to modern blues to Rock'n'roll.

Cheers, Nigel ( Liverpool UK)

I've been working on the min7b5 inversions for a while and found a cool thing. Since each min7b5 chord is one step away from a diminished 7th chord (e.g. Bm7b5=B D F A...Bdim7=B D F Ab), you can play each Dim7 chord 4 steps up or back, raise THAT one note 1/2 step and use that m7b5 chord to substitute for the previous one. Anyway, it's another cool substitution to add to a very cool concept that this lesson provides. Thanks Rich!

This one time, at Band Camp.... Well, last week was just perfect. Thanks for helping me out of my guitar coma and teaching me to think rhythmically and methodically on the fretboard. I've learned more in three days than I have in the past 10 years, and I'm swingin now! Your bassist, keyboardist and drummer really inspired us all to get up to snuff and dig deeper. Thanks too for all the big-ticket licks, theory and patience. See you next time (which I hope isn't too far off - September maybe?).

This is the best lesson site on the internet... I have downloaded several of your jazz and finger style arrangements and I was hoping that you could compile a list of favorite openings and turn arounds. Those are always fun and interesting to interchange.

Hi- New to the site- tons of great stuff 2 work on. You said to sk if you don't see it- well, I was looking for info on Wes Montgomery's block chords, which I gather are minor inversions alternating with dim played as scale tones. I am working on your triple stops which is nice, but looking for the Montgomery block style too- any luck? Thanks

Rich, your chords for the Nat King Cole 'Christmas song' are the best I have ever seen - and your playing is delightful. You have a great 'touch.' I'm glad I found your website - it's a treasure trove - and such GREAT value. Simply Outstanding!!!

Your lessons are excellent. Through them I've made more progress with the guitar than I have made for years.

I just finished your lesson on “Misty.” First, I want so say that the arrangement was beautiful, with lush chords and harmony. I enjoy your explanations of chord substitutions and find them very helpful for my musical education. I appreciate your generous educational offerings to the “masses” and thoroughly enjoy the video lessons. I hope you keep doing them for a long time.

My 2 cents. Richs approach is the most practical and fastest way to get up to speed with playing jazz guitar. He puts aside all the nonsense that we all have gotten bogged down in which prevents us from doing what we want to do...Play Jazz Guitar.
Steve Elk on March 17, 2013 at 8:58 AM said:

I have been playing for fifty years and I have not come across advanced lessons that come close to what Rich has been teaching. He teaches step by step standards that I love and his approach makes it very learnable.

I returned to the guitar after a fifteen year hiatus from it, with a serious interest in learning to play well. Can't remember exactly how I discovered your video lessons but I'm totally addicted to them at this point. I've been improving in all areas by leaps and bounds using your videos, and I've developed a jazz repertoire to boot. I also bought a great Eastman guitar from you at a great price a year or so ago. Thanks for putting out such a great product. Outstanding value for the investment.
