This is the comping underneath the solo section in my tune "Headbanger's Hairspray" from my "Above, Below, and Beyond" CD. The harmony is a simple I, IV, V progression in E (dominant) (E7, A7, B7). The first phrase is a permutation of a basic blues boogie woogie pattern. I leave a lot of space with the IV chord (bars 5 and 6) to let things breathe as well as the V to IV chords in bars 9 and 10. There is tension built in the final bar (12) using a chromatic climb.
