Comping = Complimenting. :). Start there

Автор Lauri91 ( назад)
I agree too. From the first chord I was turned on.

Автор Charles Tresca ( назад)
Great! Nice opening with Very Early! C.G.T. Ukiah, CA

I like your approach to comping chords.

Автор 2MrBrian ( назад)
More than inversion, voicing really means what notes do you choice to play
and what notes do you leave out. In other words, how do you voice a chord?
For example, maybe you would voice a G7b9 b13chord as F, B, Eb,Ab and leave
out the root. Or you may play a C6/9 as E, G, A, D. Both of those examples
are rootless voicings. Or you may voice Gb9 as G, B, F, Ab leaving out the
fifth, D.

Автор Don Won ( назад)
I'm pretty sure voicing means inverting the individual notes in some of the
chords so that they sound differently. In other words the notes get flipped
upside down and such. The root note for example normally acts as the bass
note, but when it is inverted, it becomes one of the higher pitched notes
in the chord. That way the chords have a different 'voicing' in how they
sound. That not only changes the voicing of the chord but it also allows
you more ways to play melodies around your chords.

can someone please tell me what the song was at the beginning? 

Автор markushalfmad ( назад)
@clarity754 thank you very much - it's all very clear now! cheers!

Автор Michael Scott ( назад)
@markushalfmad Voicing basically refers to the order of the notes in the
chord. If you take a Cmaj7 chord (comprised of the notes C E G B) and play
it in that order you have a "closed" voicing or Root position chord. If you
change the order to E G B C you have a Cmaj7 chord in first inversion
(meaning the E is the lowest sounding note). Change the order again to G B
C E and you have a second inversion Cmaj7 chord. It's how your "voicing"
the chord. It's still the same chord, Cmaj7

Автор markushalfmad ( назад)
I understand 'comping' as a short term for 'accompanying' but I still don't
quite understand the term 'voicing' - my guess would be 'the melodic line
resulting from a sequence of chords', but then I suppose that would be
called 'chord melody' Pls, can someone shed some light on this terminology
aspect to help me understand its precise meaning?

Just finished Jazz Guitar 101 with Bruce at Berklee On Line. Changed me as
a guitar player. He is a fantastic teacher and inspiring player. The cost
of the course was some of the best money invested in my pursuit. Thanks
again Bruce.

Автор Eric Zabala ( назад)
who else absolutely adores the cmaj7 chord, only the jazziest,laid-back
chord ever? :D

Автор upT3mpo ( назад)
@marguitar1 Freddie Green, but if you want to be inspired I suggest you
start with Wes Montgomery, almost every great player today is inspired by
Wes, for good reason. If you really want to be influenced, also try
non-guitarists like Charlie Parker (Sax), Dizzy Gillespie (Trumpet), or
Chic Corea (Keys). It's all just great music at the end of the day, it just
happens to be the guitar which is your chosen choice of instrument. Good
luck and keep going with it, time = results!

Jazz is beautiful

Автор Gerald Hardy ( назад)
can you break that down from :24 - :34

Автор Subsharp ( назад)
@Luisrox123 if you mean by playing over changes....you just have to be
really quick. This is a difficult and robotic approach in my opinion, I
prefer just forgetting theory at this point and just playing from the
distance of the note just played its good to have an idea of a few notes
you want to play if something changes or you get lost, but the left brain
is pretty uninvolved.

his fingers are like perfect for electric guitar. well rounded finger tips.

Автор G7flat5 ( назад)
Bruce is great! I took Jazz 101 with him and am taking 201 with him. He
knows so much cool hip stuff and is very generous in sharing his knowledge.

Автор Luisrox123 ( назад)
I've always wondered how to solo over someone comping a chord. I'm somewhat
new to jazz please someone reply! i cant see how arpeggios would work
because some chords are only played for half a second or something like
that. Help!
