Matt Munisteri teaches Peghead Nation’s Roots of Jazz Guitar course, as well as a great Swing Guitar Soloing workshop. And he is gearing up to teach a new six-session live workshop series called The Song According to Matt Munisteri, starting on Wednesday, August 31 at 5 PM Pacific Time, with subsequent sessions every other Wednesday evening, ending on November 9, 2022.

While he was in the Peghead Nation studio a bit ago, Matt played a solo version of Eddie Lang’s showpiece “April Kisses.” Lang is credited with writing the tune, though some speculate that it was an old Italian melody, and he recorded it on April 1, 1927. “April Kisses” has become the prototypical jazz guitar tune, and Matt teaches it in his course, along with many other classic 1920s and ’30s tunes, chord-melody solos, advanced rhythm guitar techniques, and acoustic jazz picking techniques.

In The Song According to Matt Munisteri, you’ll explore some of Matt’s favorite songs from a variety of sources: jazz, folk, country, western swing, rock, 1960s pop music, etc. Matt will show you how focusing on these great songs can help you learn to improvise through chord changes, master the fingerboard, expand your knowledge of music theory, and more. This workshop series is designed for intermediate-to-advanced guitarists.
