2 Hour Lesson
Jack Marchewka - Phillips, WI
Doing more lessons with him...

Earlier this week I had the opportunity to do a 2-hour online lesson with Robert Conti.
Robert’s approach to teaching jazz guitar is to get you playing and that’s exactly what we did in our lesson. Just like his books and DVDs, there is a lot of information packed into a very small space. This can be deceiving, in my opinion, because it’s going to take time and effort on my part to learn and internalize the material. There aren’t any shortcuts.

The two hours went by quickly, and I look very much forward to doing more lessons with him. I also received a video of our lesson that day. As a teacher, Robert Conti was personable, patient, knowledgeable, and encouraging. As a side note, I really enjoyed his stories and look forward to hearing more in the future.

Great strings

Well balanced, easy to play strings with very good tone.

Entrada Archtop Guitar
Erwin Kramer - Netherlands
A very happy guitar player...

For the last two decades or so I have been looking for a guitar with the following specs: thin body single cutaway jazz guitar, single pickup, good quality, good looks and above all affordable. I think I nailed it this time. I was browsing the web for the millionth time when I stumbled upon this site of Robert Conti. I immediately mailed them and they answered all my questions quickly and to the point. They even facilitated my indecisiveness on the bridge top: Gotoh T.O.M or compensated ebony. I got both. Since I live in The Netherlands, Europe I expected a long wait before I could hold the guitar I ordered in my hands. Not so. Shipped Monday and delivered Thursday! Thumbs up for both Conti Guitars and their shipping firm FedEx. I use the guitar already. Mr. Conti and his staff have made me a very happy guitar player indeed. This is stellar service. To be recommended!

Gold Finger Tailpiece
Barry Sobrin - Ocean, NJ
Beautiful tailpiece

My brother has the Conti guitar which comes with this tailpiece. It is a really nice addition to any guitar, especially an archtop. I had to buy it for my upcoming custom made arch top!

Vol. 2 - Ticket To Improv
Michel Boulet, Montreal
Ticket to improv 1-2-3-4

This is great stuff! I have been playing for a long time but I always felt a little stuck in the Jazz genre. These lessons are what I was looking for because they only imply earing and playing typical jazz sounds and making them your's so they can pop into your improvisations later on. There is no bettr way to learn and Robert Conti is a real champion teacher. YouTube video placeholder
Entrada Archtop Guitar
Elliott Seymour - Plano, TX USA
Everything you described it to be...

Robert, the Entrada is everything you described it to be in the personal video you sent — and more! It plays smoothly and the notes are clear and very sharp. My wife, Linda, likes the color of the guitar, and the look of the Gold Finger tailpiece. In your video you explained that the Gold Finger tailpiece contributes to the sound of this beautiful arch top as well as looking nice.

I have enjoyed my equity model for 10 years, and now I can continue that enjoyment with a lighter guitar around my neck.

I started my Conti journey with your Source Code and Ticket To Improv DVDs, and now I am improving my playing with the live private online lessons with Robert. Wow! Great instructional products, wonderful guitars, and the outstanding teaching of Robert Conti.

Thank you again, and God bless you.

Text From Carol Kaye’s Facebook Post (shown above):

“I highly recommend the fine Steve Bryant, excellent lifelong teacher, and top studio bass player in Nashville for all lessons online…..he’s taken over my students and is doing a great job. For guitarists, I highly also recommend Robert Conti, as the best in teaching improv and chordal playing for standards and Jazz.……you can also buy my books and courses, but wanted to stress these fine teachers when you’re ready, Thank-you, Carol Kaye Please note, this is an older pic, I don’t use that gear anymore.”

A Very Special Thank You To Carol Kaye!

Those outside of the music business may not recognize her name. However, if you’ve listened to popular music on radio or recordings, or you’ve watched successful TV series and major motion pictures since the 1960’s, you may be assured that you’ve heard her stellar performing skills on all of those sound tracks on the radio or on numerous motion pictures. As well documented, Carol’s creative skills, i.e. (signature bass lines, intros etc.) caused her to dominate the great super player rhythm sections of the Hollywood Recording Studios in the 1960’s, as the first call session bassist of the ’60s. As a minute sampling, Carol’s in demand skill, is heard on major productions from luminaries such as: Quincy Jones, Henry Mancini, Lalo Schifrin, Michel LeGrand, Barbra Streisand, Lou Rawls, Glen Campbell, Frank Sinatra, Andy Williams, The Beach Boys, Ray Charles et al. Indeed, her credits could fill a Los Angeles telephone directory, as documented, her recording credits are well in excess of Ten Thousand globally released productions. A complete listing of her credentials may be reviewed at:

Carol Kaye clearly commands respect as a giant of a musician, along with her entrepreneurial business skills via her publishing company – in essence, this wonderful woman is a living legend and institution of knowledge. It is with my utmost respect for her major accomplishments and significant lasting contributions to the music industry, that I extend a humble and sincere thank you to Carol Kaye, for her endorsement as to the credibility of my educational work.
