Watch the Swingin With The Duke online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Jazz Guitar 7: Style Variations

Swingin With The Duke - Performance is a video guitar lesson presented by David Blacker and is sourced from Swing Blues Survival Guide: Rhythm.

This piece is an extension of the 4-to-the-bar comping ideas covered in the concepts section of this course. A key thing to keep in mind is to play these voicings with a soft touch as the chords are very bass heavy.

When playing with other musicians, the goal is to make the rhythm more "felt" than "heard." It's also good practice to analyze the chord tones for each chord substitution and understand its relationship to the base chord it is substituting for.
