Na maior parte da história do jazz, o piano tem sido o instrumento principal e geralmente o único comping. Este texto ajudará os guitarristas a entender o trabalho mais importante que eles têm quando tocam em um pequeno grupo: acompanhar. Este livro pode ser usado como um estudo progressivo de comping ou simplesmente uma fonte de ideias. Embora os ritmos e a voz principal sejam encontrados em todo o livro, eles são isolados para estudo em seções específicas. O livro e o acompanhamento de áudio abrangem vozes principais, multiúso de vozes, variações de voz, acordes de passagem, escalas harmonizadas, comping intervalado, ritmo e estudos (blues, standard, moderno e modal). Inclui acesso ao áudio online.
For most of the recorded history of jazz, the piano has been the main, and usually the only, comping instrument. This text will help guitarists get a handle on the most important job they have when playing in a small group: comping.

Andrew Green gives the reader an informative book of musical instruction, and an entertaining CD to accompany it! The jazz guitar comping CD features Andrew Green on guitar, with John McNeil on trumpet, Matt Pavolka on bass and Diego Voglino on drums. The CD contents listing is found on page 136.
Andrew Green gives the reader one of the finest recent books for the study and application of jazz guitar comping. His writing and explanations are clear.
The introduction covers a wide range of topics. The section on basic voicings is excellent.
Voice leading includes various topics. Among the topics are moving notes, two-note voicings, three-note voicings, the upper voice, and non-functional chord progressions.
Multi-use voicings and voicing variations contain much information that is helpful to the beginning as well as the season performer. Passing chords, harmonized scales, intervallic comping, rhythm, and studies and analysis make for educational and entertaining reading.
I would suggest the reader check out the passing chords section, page 65, for it gives an interesting approach to playing guitar progression with passing chords. Having always enjoyed blues music, I found the fingering techniques intriguing and interesting. I think the reader will, too. In fact, everything about this book's approach should find a ready guitarist who wants some good, solid material for study and application.
Congratulations to Andrew Green for a fine job with his book, for it among the best available on jazz guitar comping. Excellent.
