  Course Overview

Welcome to Ben Eunson's master class, An Introduction to Modern Jazz Guitar.

Course Overview

In this course, you'll learn how Ben achieves his fluid, legato sound. In Parts 1 and 2, you'll be walked step-by-step through Ben's approach to three key concepts; arpeggios, scales, and altered tensions. The videos for these lessons are broken into bite size chunks – you'll be able to progress through them quickly but we encourage you to take your time to absorb and apply the concepts on your guitar.

To finish, in Part 3 – through a series of songs and studies– you'll see these concepts in action, as well as a look into Ben's compositional process.
