Watch the 30 Killer Comping Concepts for the Organ Trio Guitarist online guitar lesson by Doug Munro from 30 Killer Comping Concepts
Hi, I'm Doug Munro, and welcome to 30 Killer Comping Concepts for the Organ Trio Guitarist. The traditional B-3, drums, and guitar trio presents a unique situation for comping. When the organist solos, he usually plays the solo with his right hand and the bass with his left hand. That leaves the guitarist in charge of the harmony as well as the key person in the rhythmic presentation of the group. Not only does the guitarist have to fill the harmonic and rhythmic "void", he/she has to react to and help build the organists solo.
I've received messages from guitarists asking me to explain what I'm doing when I comp behind the organ solo, and in this course, I'm going to demonstrate 30 "go to" comping concepts that you can mix and match to build and maintain great comping ideas in an organ trio. We'll cover a variety of organ trio styles from blues to bebop, Latin to funk, ballads to blistering up-tempos. I'm eager to share with you all I've learned over the past 30 years as a working guitarist. So, grab your guitar, and let's get going!
