A real master!

JazzMaster Product Review:
I have quite a few Conti courses and I think he is a great nuts-and-bolts teacher, especially be-bop soloing. I haven't found anyone who offers so many chord substitutions. He shows how to play a tune that has maybe 6 - 8 chords and use maybe 40 - 50 choices. Mind boggling at first but when you figure him out, he's WOW!

A little gem

JazzMaster Product Review:
This course is a little gem among the many Truefire course. At first, you might be thrown by the old-timey production, but actually there's a ton of great information. Conti, a real master of jazz, take you measure by measure of solos for three different types of jazz tunes. However, it's not a just a play-this-note, play-that-note course. Conti tells you the substitutions he's thinking of when playing the line and there are some great comping ideas too. By the end of the course, you'll have a lot of great moves to add to your vocabulary. Definitely worth the time and money for this course.

Fascinating and Different

Review on Jazz Master product:
This is my first experience with Conti's methodology and it's fascinating - unusual compared with most other approaches, but it seems to work! Looking forward to trying some of the others.

Wow I'm getting there...

Review on "Jazz Master" Product:
Wow, Robert Conti blazes across the fretboard, and I'm thinking I'm never going to do any of this. But slowly putting small chunks together, and practice exactly how Mr. Conti tells you and Wow I'm getting there.

Like his explanation of....

Review on "Jazz Master" Product:
I like his explanation of fingering the left hand and that he explains that he has transcribed a jazz standard do that it fits within a box. I think it is a fantastic idea and will be working on it as I go through the course.

In line with his teaching philosophy that you learn to play jazz guitar by playing jazz guitar, it follows that right and left hand technique is essential.  If you can’t physically play the jazz lines you’re learning, they won’t do you any good.  Technique is the currency of playing and without it, you’re broke.

But Will It Work For Me?

Like the approach and philosophy

I pick up ideas from the right and left techniques of the different lessons, I have progressed at the technical level of the chords, I like the approach and the philosophy by Robert Conti. I'm French so sometimes I strain my ears to understand the wise advice but with patience it's fine. thank you again

A kind of revelation for me

I try to make some comments for your website although my English is not the best. But I can tell right now that your products were a kind of revelation for me. As Robert says in the video, I was one of those who has lost a lot of time with « mode and scales ». Thanks a lot for those DVDs!

Helpful and inspiring

I'm getting on slowly with the DVDs. I'm a real beginner at Jazz guitar although I have played several other instruments during my lifetime, so I have a reasonable knowledge of music theory and practice. I am concentrating on the Precision Technique to try to get some technical facility with the guitar, but also made a start on Ticket to Improv volume one. My problem is I've never played single string stuff on the guitar, nor ever used a pick so this new project is a real challenge (I am 69 yrs old so don't perhaps learn quite as quickly as I used to!)

My biggest struggle is placing the fingers of the left had on the right strings (you can't really see the fretboard when you're looking edge-on) and then trying to hit the correct string with the pick. Sounds easy but it's not! I am improving though - just too slow for my liking, but I do realise it will come with time. The coming winter will give me more time to practice. I am enjoying it though and that's the main thing. Bob's various narratives have been very helpful and inspiring, as has the player's gallery.

I really like Bob's approach to learning - it is exactly the approach I've discovered for myself over many years on different instruments. Practice by playing the music you want on the instrument - use exercises only when technical facility needs to be specifically improved. Leave theory to later (or maybe not at all).

Exactly what I need at this point

I've only been using it for the last two days, but I know it is exactly what I need at this point. I'm a beginning guitarist (I'm 64). I've been playing for 5 months (but 2 hrs per day). I took up the guitar specifically to play jazz and I've definitely felt that it is important to focus on my technique even at this early stage. I've also decided to use the .38mm pick. This is quite an adjustment for me, because I've been using a 5mm pick! While there is not as much volume with the ultra thin pick, I've certainly noticed a definite improvement in the tone and articulation of the notes. I am very excited by Robert Conti's technique and teachings. Thank you all for making these wonderful products.

Really improved on jazz improvisation

Conti products are awesome and my guitarist has improved a lot. We are indeed happy customers and wow thank you for the picks :) About the video, he said he will make one and I'd send you the link when its ready. All I can say for now is he really improved on Jazz improvisation because of Robert Conti videos and books! We love jazz more than any kind of music!
