Guitar

The guitar has a great history in jazz music from early pioneers such as Charlie Christian and Django Reinhardt to modern day virtuosos such as Allan Holdsworth and Kurt Rosenwinkel. Like the piano, the guitar is both a support and a lead instrument so make sure you spend as much time on your chords as you do on your solo lines!
