Ken's Jazz Guitar Studies

Hello, I am about to take over this blog to record my experiences while I try to develop my jazz guitar skills and knowledge. I will be posting articles and comments while I struggle with the complexities of learning jazz guitar and highlighting the study materials I am using. These will be articles from the SJGS website and lessons purchased from tutors on and off the internet.
I should firstly explain that my objective is to show what I am studying, record my progress with it and the feelings of this beginner. What is definitely NOT intended, is provide tuition to other players, I'm not qualified.
I will also initially be learning to use this blog editor, if that is the correct terminology, and as I learn what it can and can't do, I hope the blog content will improve.
I hope to post new content every week, health and "real world" life permitting, the first posts will concentrate on a new TrueFire.com program from a USA jazz guitarist, Henry Johnson. In 54 years of listening to jazz guitar I have never heard of, Henry Johnson, but I like his sound, approach and aims in writing this course. The course is titled "Jazz Expressions", and a first quick scan through shows it is based on Mr Johnson's own concepts, techniques and observations on playing jazz guitar. So let me get the guitar in my hands and explore, I'll report how I get on in a weeks time.
