One of the hardest parts of learning jazz guitar is developing a strong foundation in music theory. This includes understanding concepts like chord progressions, scales, and modes, as well as being able to apply these concepts to jazz music specifically. Jazz music can be harmonically complex, and developing a solid understanding of theory is essential to playing the genre well. Frank Vignola‘s Jazz Standard Learning System series does just that, take all these concepts and distill them into teachable bites in the form of standards.
