Watch the Green Triads online guitar lesson by Matthieu Brandt from Chord Tricks For Electric Blues
Count Basie's guitar player Freddie Green was an expert at chopping away four chords per measure in a swing progression. This is not an easy style to play, especially if you want to play four different chords per bar. Best is to leave some notes out and play bare bone inversions of chords. A great trick to give your backup some backbone.
