What it is

The Jazz Guitar Ring is a collection of web sites and home pages around the web for those interested in beautiful guitars, guitar playing, guitar music, especially jazz, guitar brands, guitar maintenance. On every page which belongs to the ring you will find a next link that will bring you to the next page in the ring, until eventually you get back to where you started.
This service is absolutely free, there is no catch.

If you play jazz or blues guitar, or love guitars, and if you have a quality website or home page dedicated to jazz guitars, jazz or blues guitar playing, or players, your site definitely belongs in the jazz guitar ring!

Since there are already Web Rings which focus on topics such as beginners' lessons, Country and Steel music, Rock, Grunge, Heavy Metal playing, and more, the focus of this ring is on electric guitars, advanced playing, and jazz or blues.
