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

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.

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.

The Signature Chord Melody Arrangements Series

If you can play a chord grid, you can play these harmonically rich arrangements.

For those who are unaware, Robert Conti’s chord melody arrangements are a favorite reader feature in every issue of Just Jazz Guitar magazine.

The Problem

In the world of jazz guitar, almost every chord solo arrangement is written in notation and tablature, which is often discouraging and perhaps, the very reason why most guitarists steer clear of solo playing.

The Conti Approach

Robert Conti eliminates any guess work on your part because he is concerned enough to take the time to include the correct chord grid for every note in the melody line.  In several arrangements, Conti includes multiple rows of chord grids to demonstrate harmonic choices for the player.  The choice is always left to player preference, as either upper or lower row is acceptable.

Players are also urged to experiment with varying combinations of the chords to create new harmonic palettes. While many guitarists do not read notes, every guitarist can read a chord grid, and the ability to play that simple grid will allow any guitarist to actually play a great arrangement. Every Conti arrangement offers clear proof of his determination to be certain that guitarists of even minimum skill, will be able to play these arrangements.

Note: Arrangements are print only (no audio or video is included)

Captivating, well worth the effort

This was the first book I ordered and it was a great choice. "You go to my head" arrangement is difficult and captivating, well worth the effort. Body and soul is thought provoking and try playing it in different keys such as a cycle of fourths for a challenge. I'm still working on it. This is way better than watching TV. Thanks Robert.
