Alright, I'm pretty much brand new to jazz, so I have a question. I want to learn a few new songs, so any recommendations on some basic jazz songs. Also, what is a good amp setting for playing jazz?
grok it.

Sweet Georgia Brown is a very easy jazz standard. I'd start there. If you don't have any jazz knowledge, but have some music knowledge, get a beginning jazz book and start learning some of the stuff in there. That will really help you learn the basics while still learning a few songs. The other thing is to just get a fake book (I would suggest the Real Book) and hack your way through a song a day until you can play some.

Hmm, some jazz standards would include georgia on my mind, wonderful world, it donl;t mean a trhing if it ain't got swing, and trad jazz stuff like stormy weather. I'mpretty new to jazz too so I can't help much with that. As for amp settings, lots of bass and midds, and try alterin your tone controlls for a smoother, fatter bassier tone, les pauls are good cuase they were designed as jazz guitars, teles and strrtas will be harder. Listen the Gerger Bensen, he is a fantastic jazz player with great phrasing. Also minor swing by Django Reinhardt for the gypsy jazz stuff.
