Jazz guitar guru Jim Ferguson - the author of the highly acclaimed All
Blues For Jazz Guitar: Comping Styles, Chords & Grooves
(MLB2329) again helps you take your playing to the next level with
Comping Standards For Jazz Guitar, his most recent
offering. Using common jazz chord progressions, the book takes you
through three primary comping approaches: straight-four, moving bass
lines, and combo variants. In the process, you'll learn numerous chord
voicings, ways to organize them, and a wide variety of dynamic rhythmic
figures used in jazz.
Other highlights include the use of guides and
pivots, chord substitution, mastering rootless chords, playing with a
pianist, inverting partial harmonic structures, Latin comping, chord
scales, handling modal tunes, and mixing voicings. And the highly
detailed music examples cover most of the common jazz keys. The material
comes to life on the accompanying 17-track CD. In both standard
notation and tablature.
