Matt Munisteri is a guitarist, singer, and songwriter based in New York City, and we’re thrilled to have him teaching his Peghead Nation course, Roots of Jazz Guitar.
While he was in the studio recording lessons for his new course, Matt played this great version of “Picking the Guitar.” The tune was composed by guitarist and singer Nick Lucas, who first recorded it in 1922, making it one of the earliest instrumental guitar recordings.
In Matt’s new course, you’ll learn to play the 1920s and '30s chord melody and rhythm guitar styles of Lucas, Eddie Lang, Freddie Green, Carl Kress, and other early jazz greats. With chord melody solos to popular swing melodies, advanced rhythm guitar techniques, and acoustic jazz picking techniques.
