I'd love to see Guitar Tricks add a Jazz track along with Rock, Blues, Country, etc.
There is not a GT jazz course because there's not as much demand for it as there is for Rock, Blues & Country. However, I've organized my tutorials on my directory to give students a general path to follow. Scroll down the page about halfway until you get to the Jazz Guitar section!
And in my instructor forum I have a sticky thread that outlines a specific path for learning jazz at GT.
Please keep in mind that jazz guitar is a complex & difficult endeavor. We can teach you the basics & a few tunes, but beyond a certain point it's very much like classical guitar. It's a serious discipline that will require a lot of time & effort, likely involving a real world university level study course.
Hope that helps! Best of success learning jazz guitar!
