Making The Transition From Rock To Jazz Guitar?

Smile, you're in the right place!  If you've had your fill of an internet saturated with five minute video lessons, incoherent blog posts, and enough modes and scales to last you a lifetime, read on. . .

In a sentence, Robert Conti produces players, not talkers.  The founding fathers of the art form learned to play jazz guitar without modes or scales.  Robert Conti has continuously refined this approach since 1966 to create maximum learning impact for the student.  Since this site launched in 2000, global satisfaction is well documented by numerous student videos and written commentaries that validate the stellar results obtained from the Conti learning resources. If you're disappointed with your current learning choices, then it's time to discover what you can actually accomplish with the benefit of five decades of teaching and playing skill from Robert Conti.

A Handful Of Qualified Jazz Guitar Educators

While there are many excellent jazz players, there are very few who can effectively teach their acquired skills to others. Robert Conti is the unique combination of player and educator.  His well established ability to place jazz under your fingers ranks him in the forefront of highly successful jazz educators.  If a photo is worth a thousand words, then our Players Gallery surely evidences, beyond any doubt, that any blues or rock player with some technical ability can start playing jazz lines over the chord progression to standards very quickly.

Dear MR.CONTI, After playing fusion rock jazz for so many years, I found I was board and not progressing with a jazz language that would take me into any type of bebop, so I purchased your jazz lines and I want to thank you ! Your knowledge has opened up my playing and I am playing real jazz for the first time in my life ! from the bottom of my heart thank you again ! Erik Schmidt from Jacksonville Oregon
