The tip jar is temporarily missing. I'll let you know when I find it again. Thanks for trying!

Make Sure You Join Our Facebook Group!

Our free facebook community is a huge part of our study group. Not only can you ask questions about melodic triads, post videos to get feedback from the group, and watch other members' videos to see what else is possible with melodic triads... but it's also where we have our two monthly open office hours.


Find out what we're all about and learn how to get started below!


How are jazz guitarists and musicians like us supposed to improvise and compose melodic, lyrical ideas that transcend playing scales, regurgitating memorized riffs, sweeping through arpeggios, and outlining changes with chord tones when the only approaches being taught in jazz improvisation are scales, riffs, arpeggios, and outlining changes with chord tones?



That is the question... 

And this study group explores the answers.

The Melodic Triads Study Group is made up of two parts...


  • Find all info and updates about our study group
  • Find registration for each current monthly study guide
  • Access all study guides here by clicking on the 'My Stuff' link in the navigation menu  
  • Subscribe to the Melodic Triad Private Community if you want more materials
  • Register for one-on-one Skype lessons with me if you need any help






  • The communal side to our study group
  • Connects you with hundreds of jazz guitar players all around the world who wish to master the fundamentals of music, develop their ears, learn to improvise melodically, and master jazz harmony
  • Take advantage of free open office hours sessions using facebook live
  • Share videos of your practicing and playing to get feedback from myself and others in the group
  • Watch other members' videos to see how they're applying melodic triads



Watch this 20 minute video to get an idea of what melodic triads are and the benefits of studying them.



Would you like to enjoy our free monthly resources? Or would you like to just jump in head first and get deep into our library of archived study materials by subscribing to our Melodic Triads Private Community? Don't worry... there's no right or wrong answer... and you can always change you mind later.

If you want to join our Private Community, you always have the option to cancel your membership with the click of a button... no questions asked. You don't even have to let me know. Just go into your setting and click one button to turn off your membership. If you want to try out the free resources first, you can also change your mind and subscribe later. 

The free resources available are our monthly study guides and our two open office hours per month... plus the facebook group where you can connect with others, ask questions, share your playing and practicing, and get feedback. A new study guide is released on the 1st of every month that digs into a new tune and into an in-depth look at how to create harmony and melody inside a specific tonality common in the jazz idiom. That study guide is only available during the month it was released. Then it disappears when the next month's study guide is released.

Our Private Community Members never lose access. They can hold onto the study guide as long as they keep their membership and can always access all of our older study guides as well. So there's always something to work on. They also get bonus lessons inside each study guide and access to The Underground... our private hangout spot where they can ask me questions and brain storm with each other and where I put up even more bonus study material. They also get huge discounts on Skype lessons. Over 30% off the cost of private lessons when bought in a bundle.

Once you decide whether you'd like to go the free route or subscribe and be able to work at your own pace and have an entire library of material to work from, next you'll want to come and join our facebook group. Assuming you're on facebook. You can share videos of yourself playing, see other members' videos, ask questions, and give and receive feedback. Just remember that we have members ranging from beginner to advanced pros, so while I encourage honest feedback and criticism, it must be respectful, constructive, and encouraging. I do reserve the right to remove members from our facebook page if they are being abusive. 

I also do not allow any promotional or unrelated posts. If it's not specific to melodic triads and our study material, it will be removed. We want to keep the group a very focused and helpful resource for all members. 

There is an "Introduce Yourself" thread that I will link to below. We DO allow self promotion and unrelated comments in that thread... but only in that thread. Once you've joined, click the link below to go to that thread. Introduce yourself, tell us a little bit about you and your background, share links to videos of you and your band, share links to albums if you have them... you can promote as much as you want... but only in this thread. The rest of the group is specifically for melodic triads posts.

Request to Join Our Facebook Group Introduce Yourself To The Group And Share Your Music



You're now officially part of The Melodic Triads Study Group. Move at any pace you feel comfortable with and come back here or to our growing facebook community anytime you like, 24/7. You can always ask questions in the group or hit me up if you need anything. Don't forget to check the top part of this webpage to find info on the study guide and the two open office hours for the current month.
