Jazz Guitar is Difficult
Unless You Learn From A True "Guru"
Who Knows How To Make It Easy.
Let me ask you...
Have you ever listened to jazz guitar and thought "That's cool, but it sounds too complicated and challenging"?
Have you ever wished that you possessed a wicked repertoire of jazz songs that you could play anytime, anywhere?
Have you ever wondered if there was a quick, easy way to learn jazz guitar?
If you answered "yes" to any of these questions - read on...
I don't know about you, but I used to find jazz guitar confusing and weird as hell.
Don't get me wrong - I was always impressed with the sound of jazz guitar, but I couldn't wrap my brain around it!
Even after I learned some jazz chords, progressions, theory and technique, the whole thing was still as mysterious as a set of ancient scriptures from an Egyptian tomb.
The good news is, I finally found a cool dude from Texas who's an absolutely GREAT teacher. I mean, the guy has
a great vibe... He makes things incredibly simple and easy to understand -- and actually FUN!
Imagine Learning the Best Songs From The Following Artists...
Man oh man, this guy is "The Dude" when it comes to teaching normal guitarists like us how to get into jazz. His name is Clay Moore and I really think you're gonna dig his teaching style.
Let me share an interesting "secret" with you...
The fastest, easiest way to play killer jazz guitar is: Learn to play jazz standards.
Jazz "standards" are those classic pieces that are the tried and true, best of the best, quintessential jazz songs.
So how do you learn them?
Well, you COULD spend thousands on private lessons, or waste years trying to figuring it out on your own from random books...
And you still might end up more dazed and confused than a drunk, blindfolded muskrat running in a wind tunnel. If that's your style, hey -- knock yourself out, lol...
OR... Instead, you can save yourself years of frustration with The Real Easy Jazz Guitar Course.
You'll get 3 sweet DVDs that give you all the knowledge, tips, and secrets you need to start playing jazz guitar right away, even if jazz seems totally confusing to you right now.
And just as exciting, you're going to get the amazing "REAL book". Yes...

Here's an example of Clay's EASY instructions:
Now, although you get over 230 jazz standards in the REAL book, the best part is that we filmed Clay Moore going ULTRA DEEP into ten of the best songs.
You'll be playing jazz guitar in record time, starting with easy-to-play jazz standard #1: Dearly Beloved.

The REAL Book Of Jazz Secrets is designed to take you BEYOND these DVDs... There's over 230 classic jazz songs that you can learn. The REAL Book is written in standard notation. Clay will teach you how to read this book so you can learn song after song!
If you're not interested in the REAL Book Of Jazz Secrets -- you can buy just the DVDs. You'll also get tablature written by Clay himself for all 10 songs!
However, I really recommend getting the standards book too, because you'll follow along better and get a lifetime of enjoyment from it.

This is highly recommended, because these licks are all tabbed out for you, and you can easily add a new phrase to your vocabulary anytime you want.

P.S. Here's what some of our customers are saying about the Real Easy Jazz Guitar Course:
"Very easy to understand and to follow along. There is some format on changing keys and modes that were easy to follow, to try to emulate and learn from it."
Javier Gonzalez, Texas USA
"I think it's a good course! I haven't gotten all the way through it but I've enjoyed it. I liked what it came with, it had a fake book along with it, just a lot of resources made it pretty handy. I used the tabs and am able to play some of the songs."
Kevin Tompos, Oregon USA
"I'm using it, it's great! It's something that I can keep hanging on to, it's something I can keep working with, I love the music and the chords, it's a lot of things I'm using with these chords."
Laurent St. Germaine, Texas USA
"It's the absolute best! It's the best course I've been involved in, I've been with a few over the years. I'm still studying it. Clay Moore, he's got everything in there, from very easy but he incorporates the very easy to the very difficult in each song. Sometimes he gives you the challenge of trying to work out the improvisations by yourself cause he doesn't map them down in tab form or in any type of form at all. He just goes up in tome. You can turn the CD on and do it the old way but also he has a lot of the double time stuff and his improvisations mapped out in music. It's absolutely fantastic! Now I'm only on lesson 5 and there's 10 lessons and that gives you an idea and I'm a seasoned guitar player but I've never enjoyed anything more than what I've got there. You got to hang on every word he says. He doesn't give you superfluous information. If you listen to him carefully, in the small little comments he makes there's a world of knowledge and experience in each of those comments. If you miss them you go back over and then you go oh wow, yeah, I never thought of that. His explanation of each thing that he does is absolutely perfect. He's a born teacher, this gentleman. I use the tabs. I keep his books, I downloaded it - I read it almost every day, in fact 10 minutes ago before you called I'm going to do St. Thomas next - I was reading what he did there, He does it in so many ways and explains it in so many ways, it's totally phenomenal really about it. I've never ever.. I can't say enough about it. I'm 65 yrs old, I do seven shows a month here in Halifax, short performances at different places, very short performances, like 1 hr by myself with a lot of digital equipment that can back me, backing tracks .. I use Clay Moore's backing tracks that I put on a computer that I take with me, and I do some of the songs, that's about the only thing that really shows that I can play the guitar quite honestly!"
John Linders, Nova Scotia, Canada
"I like it. It's very easy. It makes things a lot easier! The explanation and presentation is what I liked best about it. I have been using the tabs and I'm able to play about half of the songs - I'm not quite done with it yet."
Louis Salaza, Pennsylvania, USA
"It sure has been helpful to learning the fret board and everything after 40 years! I liked the way it was rolled up in C major. I like the songs that he does - they are nice and easy. He did a very nice job of arranging and everything he did. I'm practicing with the tabs."
George Kennedy, Ontario, Canada
"I thought it was nicely systematic, the production values were excellent. It's very logical; it helped me to learn quite easily. I liked it very very much. I think it's an A++! I used the tabs. I am able to play the songs"
William Brashers, Pennslyvania, USA
"I thought the teacher was an excellent guitar player! I was able to play the songs."
Chris Greene, New Jersey, USA
"It's a great course! It helps a person as a beginner and a person that is intermediate to advanced. The course is very explicit, the video is very understandable, it's easy to work with. I would suggest it to anyone that would like to learn to play jazz. It will take you from being a regular musician to an intermediate to advanced guitar player in the form of jazz. I like the video instruction because the instructor takes time to teach you how to play instead of you just getting the sheet music and learning on your own, he actually gives you hands on and the video instruction is leaps and bounds from a person who is basically used to studying scales - it takes you from a person that is studying scales into learning complete songs. Each song that you learn gets more intense and more in depth. It will help you get into the Real Jazz Book. Once you've completed the course you can take the Real Jazz Book and basically work on your own. I read music so the tabs were helpful - made it a lot easier. I am an avid guitar player I just wasn't seasoned in jazz. Since I've started learning some of the jazz songs I've been able to go into the Real Jazz Book and pick out different songs and learn them on my own."
Roosevelt Holden, Colorado, USA
"It's great! I love it. I think the video demos are great, I think it's a great course overall! I'm very satisfied with it. It's easy, very simplified - the way he teaches it is easy to learn."
Glen Baccaro, Ontario, Canada
"It's pretty nice, I like it! It's an easy way to understand what you have to do. Right now I've only gone through a little bit but so far I like what I've watched. I used the tabs and I'm able to play the songs. I am teaching my grandson, he's only nine so that's why we're taking it kinda slow."
Shedrick Garrett, Colorado USA
"I thought it was very effective at getting me to reorient my view of putting scales through chords and how I would start the scale runs or just approach a melody through the fingerings and specifically to start on the pinky every now and then instead of the middle finger and break out of the horizontal e behind the bar form that I call it and start looking at the other forms like the c shape or the a shape and to get through some standards with examples was really helpful and just to get my feet wet and starting to think differently. I like the chord voicings that he was using were easy digestible. I'm fairly advanced on some chords but he's good at filling in the gaps and not jumping to advanced too early. The flow is really good. I can play just about all the songs."
Tom Coever, Louisiana, USA
"I like it! It covers the areas that I want to improve my guitar playing in. I used the tabs and am able to play the songs."
Donald Lovins, California, USA
