Mike Di Liddo - Easy Jazz Guitar
Mike Diliddo Easy Jazz Guitar PDF. Voicings & Comping. A Book and 2 CD set with super simple comping over the Standards on Jamey Aebersold's Volume 54 "Maiden Voyage." Chords and Voicings are explained in a manner that even the most novice Guitarists will understand. Includes demo and play-a-long CDs. Book has both standard notation and guitar frames for every voicing. This is a perfect prerequisite for "Maiden Voyage Guitar Comping", also by Mike DiLiddo.
This book is a must have for any serious Jazz guitar student. While plenty of books include scales, arpeggios, and even transcribed solos, this book covers the important art of what you are supposed to do when not soloing - comping or backing up your fellow musicians. It gives practical exercises that are usable for your next gig or audition, with chord diagrams. There are simple comping patterns and chords, along with more complex ones for the student who wants to advance.
It covers a variety of rhythms and songs that are well played standards. I only wish Mike Di Liddo would write another book and cover some of the songs that he didn't cover here.
