Specifically geared for the beginning to intermediate guitarist, this class covers many comping concepts, including Drop 2, Drop 3, and pianistic voicings as they pertain to standards, specifically the ii/V/I progression. Students will learn harmonization techniques, including the Wes Montgomery block-chord style and the Joe Pass walking bass line style. Rhythmic devices and beginning tension and chord substitution will also be discussed. This class provides an excellent way for guitarists to get deeper inside their role in comping.
