Watch the (F) Comping for Yourself online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Jazz Guitar 8: Advanced Rhythm Principles

(F) Comping for Yourself - Who needs a piano player?! is a video guitar lesson presented by Fareed Haque and is sourced from Jazz Comping Survival Guide.


One of the nicest things about the guide tone approach to comping is the way it allows you to comp for yourself. The simplest way to conceptualize comping is to solo as normal, and to use guite tones to punctuate the spaces, or to put it another way - try to have a question and answer with color tones and your melody. Play a line, then interject a ‘comment' using the color tones, then back to line. Another approach is to hold a melodic voice with one finger while sneaking in the guide tones, also can we mute the mic, it's distorting and sound is too bright - nasty!
