Jamie Holroyd: 30 Days to Better Jazz Guitar Comping

Developing a strong comping and chord vocabulary is just as important as learning licks and scales. But with there been so many chords and comping techniques, knowing how to study them effectively can be tough.

With many books simply just being a thesaurus of chords with little to no application or explanation, it leaves most guitarists confused, resulting in them forgetting half of the chords learnt on the first page by the time they get half way through the book.

Because of this, I decided to put together a 30 day project in the summer of 2012, where each day for 1 month I posted a range of lessons covering many different comping and chord techniques.
