As guitarists, we learn to think about chords from the root and play them as grips. This is a practical way to play through a song, but for taking your comping up a level where you play rootless chords, make it more melodic and want to add fills and embellishments then that doesn’t really work.
In this lesson, I will show you how to think about chords so that a chord is a more flexible thing that you can play in a lot of ways and use to make music within comping or in a chord solo or solo arrangement. Chords are not just static grips.
In this lesson package, I will take you through a step-wise process that will help you transition from basic chords that you already know to rootless voicings and also discuss some of the options that include for fills.
What you will learn:
- How To Turn Standard Voicings into Rootless Voicings
- Add Top-note melodies to your comping
- Embellish and add Fills to chord voicings
