    I can play rock, blues, shred, thrash. I've even composed some songs. But I have zero jazz knowledge. I've wanted to learn it since i've seen guys do improvisations on TV where guitar, drums, bass, piano do their solos one after the other. I think it would increase my skills many fold. It would...

    I'm looking for something rhythm oriented with a real groove to it, something quick and centered around a major key. Preferably something with a lot of room for experimentation and improvisation.

    I'm selling off most of my CDs and figured I would try listing the guitar-heavy music on here. Here's the deal - shipping is only inside the continental US - flat rate of $1.50 for any single CD. If you want more than one (and I am really hoping to sell multiple discs to everyone), let me know...

    Holy ****, I've heard a few people talk about him on here but never really heard him play, so i decided to hit up some vids on youtube. Oh my god, he totally blows just about anyone else i've heard out of the water for technical ability. I know Dee will be able to answer this, but can anyone...

    Hey, I want to start listening/playing some jazz but I don't know where to start. Can anybody recommend some good CDs to listen to (doesn't have to be guitar based) and some materials to help me start to playing Jazz.

    Any advice or recommended artists? I think I will truly be a rock guitarist, thats why I need help to develop some jazz chops. My school jazz band has a competition soon, and I need some epiphanies in my playing. I always listened to EJ but I need some new guitarists. My band director says I...

    I found out something sad today, although it comes nearly eight years too late, so it's not news. I remember way back in 1992 or 93, I was a young metalhead guitarist..you know Yngwie this, Steve Vai that, playing Metallica covers in bands, you know the deal. I hated, hated jazz..I was young...

    Y'know that feeling when you pick up a guitar and feel useless? bored of the same ol' routine? If your name happens to be Yngwie you're probably thinking "No..." but if you aren't a prick, how do you get out of that way of thinking? Sometimes I just pickup the guitar and mess around with the...

    I was going through my buddy's CD collection and I realized 90-95% of his music was metal/prog/shred. He doesn't even own a Zeppelin album (is that legal?!?!). What do y'all listen to? Does anyone jam something totally weird that you wouldn't think a typical Jemsite reader would listen to...

    I know that sounds odd but most people i know of start learning guitar when they are alot younger than me. I'm 19 and i originally started when i was 16 but back then i was naieve and expected too much without work. My mistake. Then i picked it up again a few months back and this time around i'm...

    I did a quick search and didn't see much recent discussion about Eric's new album. I've been listening to it a bit lately and I feel two ways about it. A. The songwriting: It's much better. There's not a track that I skip and several of them are legitimately interesting and catchy. B...
