Watch the Pack of Lies online guitar lesson by Mimi Fox from Jazz Performance
SPACE the final frontier! Guitarists are famous for being real showboats and hey, I'm down with virtuosity! However, don't wait until great bassists are glaring at you to learn to use space in your comping by dropping out for a while. It's really nice for the audience too the contrast can be stunning and sets up your re-entry in a nice way. Remember that bassists are working super hard, all the time to make YOU sound good! Doesn't it make sense to return the courtesy? If you are in doubt as to what a particular bassist prefers behind them when they are soloing, ASK THEM!
