Hi, I’m Greg O’Rourke

BMus (Hons), ANU
Professional Jazz Guitarist, and Founder of FretDojo.com

If you’re like most jazz guitarists, you feel like your playing is stuck in a rut. It feels like your playing hasn’t improved in years – in fact, sometimes it feels like you’ve gotten worse. Sure, you might have tried a few Youtube videos or websites to get your skills up a notch, but it was impossible to piece everything together in a way that made sense.

First off, I want to say I know what it feels like. Learning to play jazz guitar can seem so confusing and complicated – there seems to be so much theory to learn, so many chord voicings, so many licks and scale patterns – the list goes on.

I’m a professional guitarist that has worked in the music industry for over 25 years, and I developed the FretDojo Jazz Guitar Academy with all this in mind.

The FretDojo Academy VIP Club Membership is a structured, step-by-step program that will build your skills from the basic foundations of jazz guitar playing all the way to you being able to perform at a pro level. All areas of jazz guitar are covered from soloing, chord melody, comping, to chord soloing and more – and you’ll do all this whilst dramatically building  your set list at the same time. I look forward to seeing you on the inside!

“Greg O’Rourke plays the guitar with a beautiful touch and tone. He effortlessly brings out and enhances harmonic movement and counter-lines in his playing, while keeping clear melodic lines in the forefront. Using his considerable fingerstyle technique he creates personal renditions of classic jazz standards. Definitely someone to watch and listen to closely!”

Frequently Asked Questions

So what exactly is included as part of my VIP Club Membership?

Your membership will include access to a HUGE library of high-quality video based lessons on all aspects of learning jazz guitar – improvisation, comping, theory, chord melody – the works. Everything you need to become a confident jazz player will be immediately accessible to you upon becoming a member.

You’ll also have the ability to get your questions answered about any aspect of the material, and an online members-only forum so you can connect with other FretDojo Academy members.

Through joining up, you’ll have the three pillars of learning at your fingertips: a qualified teacher, step-by-step learning materials, and a supportive community.

Is the Academy for players more advanced than myself?

 This Academy is unique because it caters to all skill levels of jazz guitar, no matter where you are in your journey. A Getting Started Guide we have added to the website includes Learning Pathways to advise what material you should be focusing on the most, depending on your skill level. and interest.

What lessons will I have access to in the Academy when I join?

Regardless of when you sign up, you’ll have access to ALL of the previous lessons added to the Academy Course Library – it’s all rolled into your membership. You’ll continue to have access to all the previous courses released as long as your membership is active.

What other benefits does the FretDojo Jazz Guitar Academy provide?

In addition to the great multimedia lesson materials that have become a hallmark of the FretDojo, you’ll also have the additional benefit of being able to interact with ME directly. There will also be opportunities for getting feedback from special guest jazz guitarists, some of the highest calibre players the world over.

Not only that, you’ll also have access to a truly supportive community, with all the friendships and good connections that comes along with that. Jazz guitar can be a lonely pursuit at times – but it no longer needs to be.

 

What is the skill/knowledge level that’s required for being in the Academy? Do you cater for beginner, intermediate, and advanced jazz students?

Although this Academy isn’t suitable for complete beginners at guitar (e.g if you’ve only been playing for a few months), it caters for all levels of jazz guitar skill, even beginner jazz players. No matter where you’re at in your journey, there is relevent material in the curriculum to get you started. 

How much practice time do I need to participate?

The Academy is very much a ‘go at your own pace’ affair – you’ll have access to all the courses in the Course library as long as you’re a member, so your learning can be on a schedule that suits YOU. 

How much theory do I need to know already?

I’ll be keeping this side of things as simple as possible, so that you can have the bare bones of the theory and still be able to get straight to the point – making great music.

For those of you interested in the theory side of things, I feature “deep dive” lessons on theory throughout. But if you find it’s over your head, shift your focus more to learning and internalizing the material covered, rather than the theory so much. You can always come back and look closer at the theoretical elements of jazz when it becomes more relevant to you.

 

Do I need to be able to read music?

No – It’s not necessary to read music notation for this program. At any rate, TAB will be provided for all the musical examples as well as the notation, if you’re more familiar with reading tablature.

How is this different from the other offerings out there?

There’s a lot of reasons.

Firstly, I really care about my students, and I know how hard it is to find high-quality learning materials on jazz guitar. There is a big difference between materials that appear to help make you a better player, and those that actually do. From my experience, it takes far more time, thought and energy to create materials that actually help students achieve their goals rather than pretend to.

I want you to succeed and be happy with your jazz guitar playing, so I put a great deal more effort into my lessons than others do. I also strive to have a clear, step-by-step approach to teaching in order to make the learning process as easy as possible for you.

The result: I believe my lesson materials are of the highest caliber, and a big step ahead of other offerings out there.

Can I cancel my subscription anytime? Are there any extra fees for canceling?

You can cancel your membership at any time with no extra charges or hidden fees. When you cancel, you can keep all the materials you’ve already downloaded from the Academy website and take them with you.

Okay, I’m convinced. how can I sign up?

The FretDojo VIP Club is Everything You Need For Complete Mastery of Jazz Guitar

  • Quickly develop a large set list of tunes to play at jam sessions, gigs, or simply to enjoy playing at home to a captive audience of your family and friends.
  • Learn new single line improvisation concepts and licks from the huge archive of lessons, directly relevant to the tune you’re learning
  • Have a complete step-by-step approach to learning new jazz standards, with all the resources conveniently in one place
  • Supercharge your comping and chord soloing with new approaches and chord phrases as part of each month’s lesson series
  • Build an impressive solo guitar and chord melody set, so you can wow your friends playing a complete performance on your own – without a band or backing track!
  • Develop your understanding of jazz harmony and theory – become an expert in the common (and more unusual) chord progressions featured in jazz standards, making soloing a breeze
  • Learn how to apply any soloing or comping technique featured to any other jazz standards you know or have worked on in the past – thus getting the best “ROI” of the material you’ve invested your time in.

Results You Can Expect From Joining The VIP Club:

Here are a couple of examples of videos which demonstrate the sorts of skills you can expect to learn by joining the Academy.

This first video is me playing On Green Dolphin Street, in the context of a jazz trio. Notice how the single line and chord melody elements are mixed together in this performance:

This next video is a solo jazz guitar version of After You’ve Gone. Like a one-man band, you can still make great jazz happen on a single guitar if you have the know-how. Notice how comping, single lines, and chord melody ideas are all combined in this rendition.

Both of these videos are excellent demonstrations of what YOU will achieve by joining the FretDojo Jazz Guitar Academy. It’s time to act!

This is the missing link standing between you and mastery of jazz guitar:

You’ll go from feeling frustrated and self-conscious about your playing to being confident and happy about your soloing, comping, and performing overall.

You’ll go from feeling like an “imposter” jazz guitarist to wowing the crowd (and your fellow band members) by effortlessly soloing over a large set list at the drop of a hat.

You’ll have the encouragement, connection, and accountability that only learning in a group with qualified teachers can provide.

And – you’ll go from being bored and frustrated with your lack of progress to experiencing rapid development in your jazz guitar skills – so you’ll finally feel great about your jazz playing.

In short – you’ll unlock your creative and expressive potential on guitar – and become the jazz guitarist that you desperately want to be.
