2 Note Jazz Ensemble “COMPING” ii V I’s etc Guitar Chord Voicing’s sequences

There is a misconception that jazz guitarists play chords with lots of notes in them, or as they are described, “Jazz chords”.

But, the opposite is actually true in most cases. Thick “jazzy” chords are muddy, un rhythmical and clutter the sound whilst getting in the way of everybody else in the ensemble.

So, let’s look at the way good comping is done.

The employment of simple 2 note voicing’s create clarity and allow for sequences of, 4th’s, 3rds, etc to be rhythmically shifted about on the guitar fingerboard easily.
