This lesson consists of 3 choruses of comping on the Jazz standard All Of Me. I recorded the examples and transcribed what I played. Each chorus is of a different complexity where the 3rd is almost a chord solo. The voicings are mostly drop2, but there are also some triad voicings and intervals used. I was trying to demonstrate some good melodic and rhythmical ideas that you can use in other songs as well.
This lesson consists of
- 3 transcribed choruses of comping on the chords of the Standard All Of Me
- 3 mp3 recordings and one backing track
- 3 videos of me playing the examples that I transcribed
To keep it as authentic as possible the examples are improvised and then transcribed. This gives the etudes a more natural flow and also a good insight into how I play and what I use when comping.
What you will see examples of
- How I approach comping on a standard like All Of Me
- Some solid ideas for applying drop2 voicings to a standard
- Using chromatic passing chords in a comping phrase
- What extensions fit where in this standard
- Advanced rhythmical ideas for comping
- Playing chords so that it is a musical statement and still clear
- combining drop2 with other types of chord voicings
Since this lesson does not contain a video of me explaining how the examples are constructed it is slightly cheaper than the other lessons.
