Learn How to Craft and Perform Compelling Jazz Rhythms
If you think about it, your primary role as a Jazz Guitarist is to be a great accompanist. Players like Kenny Burrell, Wes Montgomery and Freddie Green all possess a wide variety of comping rhythms, voicing options, and chordal embellishments to draw from whether they’re supporting a vocalist, an instrumental group or even a big band.
Tom Dempsey’s Jazz Guitar Comping Playbook examines essential techniques and harmonic approaches for playing twenty-five of the most important comping rhythms and techniques you need to know when playing jazz.
”We’ll explore concepts like the Charleston rhythm, rootless voicings, Freddie Green style comping, modal comping techniques, quartal harmony, guide-tones, Bossa Nova, Samba, and many other concepts. Then we’ll learn how to modify and apply them over some of the most popular jazz standard progressions.”
For each comping approach, Tom will first demonstrate and break down the comping rhythm and chord voicings over a simple backing track and then he will show you how to connect each comping pattern to a standard jazz chord progression.
Tom will explain and demonstrate all of the key concepts and approaches along the way. You’ll get standard notation and tabs for all of the performance studies. Plus, you’ll be able to use TrueFire’s learning tools to sync the tab and notation to the video lesson. You can also loop or slow down the videos so that you can work with the lessons at your own pace. All of the backing tracks are included to work with on your own as well.
