Watch the Walking Alone & Together online guitar lesson by Sean McGowan from Walking Bass & Comping for Jazz Guitar

This ├ętude explores a variety of ways to tackle a ii-V progression in a minor key using blues language, chromatic approach, and creating and quoting melodies in the top voice of the chord and even in the bassline. Influenced by vocal groups and classic jazz pianists such as Wynton Kelly, this study features a lyrical quality to the comping and chord voicings.
