For most of the recorded history of jazz, piano players have been the main, and usually the only, comping instrument. This text will help guitar players get a handle on the most important job they have when playing in a small group: comping. This can be used as a progressive study of comping or simply a source of ideas. Although rhythms and voice leading are found throughout the book, they are isolated for study in particular sections. Companion CD is included covering voice leading, multi-use voicings, voicing variations, passing chords, harmonized scales, intervallic comping, rhythm and studies (blues, standard, modern and modal).
