Watch the Comping & Soloing online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Jazz Guitar 10: Advanced Soloing Approaches

Lesson Source: Frank Vignola's Jazz Up Your Blues


In this example we use the simple blues progression in G. The first chorus we play four beats per bar ala Freddie Green or Bucky Pizzarelli. The second chorus we play a shuffle Boogie Woogie style rhythm. The third chorus we play some sharp 9 chord stabs. Listen to them and try to envision how these different rhythm parts would feed a soloist. These sharp 9 chords can really feed a soloist as when a soloist hears this chord he'll go for more bluesy pentatonic ideas which can create some excitement in the music.
