Watch the Guide Tones online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Jazz Guitar 4: Rhythm Approaches

Guide Tones - Playing Example is a video guitar lesson presented by Fareed Haque and is sourced from Jazz Comping Survival Guide.


In this example I demonstrate using the guide tones only to comp a jazz blues. Don't think this is just academic. I can't tell you how often I have played just guide tones when comping and got smiles all around from the band and audience. Simple is better than complex, almost always.
