The Illegal cryptic black book of guitar secrets

“The name’s Johnson… Claude Johnson…”

After filming my wacky “007” video,
I’m afraid that I’m letting my “secret agent”
status swell my head.

Nah, just kidding 🙂

If I lost you, I’m talking about the wacky
video I posted to the new blog:

Yes, the video was a joke – I didn’t REALLY break
into anywhere.

I wouldn’t do that… I’m classy… LOL.

No, but seriously, the “Illegal Cryptic Black Book
of Jazz Secrets” is not a joke.

It’s very real.

It is a huge collection of over 230 jazz standards,
and once you own it, your path to playing jazz guitar is
clearly lit.

This book is so hot because it not only contains all
the best jazz tunes, but it is laid out for you
in ultra-precise detail…

You get the exact chords AND the exact melody, so
the music is all right there for you. All you need
to do is translate it onto the guitar.

The secrets to jazz lie deep within the standards.
Once you start playing some jazz tunes, you start
to unlock the magic.

You start to see, hear, and experience firsthand how
chords and melody come together to form amazing sounds.

This collection of jazz tunes was actually ILLEGAL…
Because it was put together by musicians without
giving credit to, or compensating the original

I’m talking about both guitar legends like Wes Montgomery
and George Benson… and also “non-guitar” jazz legends
like Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, Duke Ellington, and many others.

Their jazz tunes sound great on the guitar too.

Anyway, not only was this book illegal, but it was
cryptic and confusing for the beginner guitarist,
because there are no tabs.

It can be hard to tell how to play the different chords,
what voicings to use, how to combine the chords
and melody, what key centers are being used, or
how to improvise over the tunes, or even play
them convincingly.

So who can decode this for you?

That’s where the course “Real Easy Jazz Guitar” comes in.

I hired one of the best jazz guitar instructors I could
find: His name is Clay Moore. He’s a great player,
a great teacher, and an all around cool cat.

We filmed 3 DVDs of him explaining exactly how to decode
these jazz standards and turn them into real music
on the guitar that’s easy to play and easy to understand.

Not only does he go over the basic chords, scales, and
arpeggios that you need to know, but he also goes
DEEP into 10 of the best jazz standards.

Now back to that illegal book:

I spent the better part of the year working with music
publishers to gain access to this former illegal
book, so your copy is not only fully legal, but
we also can show you on video exactly how to play
these songs.

Once you go through this course, you will never be
the same.

You’ll know exactly how to proceed with jazz. Your
path will be fully illuminated. You’ll have
10 killer jazz tunes under your belt with hundreds
more to choose from.

Stay tuned, because next time I’m letting more
cats out of the bag – I’ll tell you what songs
are being included and also show you a video
clip of Clay in the new course.

Keep vibing,

Claude Johnson
