Chord Melody becomes a lot simpler with THIS COURSE...

"I am enjoying the Chord Melody Crash Course a lot. I like your approach and find it helpful. You have a knack for making practical connections between different aspects of chord melody which no one else seems to do. In your 'Misty' arrangements you use different voicings for the same chord in a number of places to demonstrate the flexibility of chord voice selections, and that is EXTREMELY helpful and instructive - good thinking!"

"I'm currently working very slowly through this course and trying to get my skills up to a higher level to do this standard justice. Your videos inspired me to keep going and I find constant reviewing of lessons is very helpful. Overall I like the accompanying pdf's which are of a high quality and I like to focus on chord melody through a process. Many thanks for your great materials."

"I'm very grateful for this Chord Melody Crash Course, it really expanded my scope in music. I'm a kind of person who don't ask question if I understood the concept. I followed your instruction to first of all learn the melody before the chord-melody and it worked for me. I finished studying the intermediate, which did not takes me much time because of the easy chord-melody knowledge I had. To me, the method of this lesson is quite satisfactory, I started playing on my own within 3 weeks and I can also apply the chords to other music. Thank you very much!"

- Gabriel I., Norway

"Thanks for the course, there is a whole ton of really good information and stuff that is helping me with my own chord melodies - which for me is the most interesting thing about jazz guitar. I really enjoy Marc's courses and his style of teaching is so laid back. He makes things fun (something to do with the smile on his face in every lesson). Reminds me that playing guitar should be fun, and not a chore."
