    Thanks, any recommendations? At the moment I am transcribing piano comping but it is pretty tough to full understand it

    I like the idea of transcribing the rhythms a piano player uses when comping, but using chord voicings that you’re already familiar with. I need to spend more time doing this! I think pianist Hank Jones‘s comping on Cannonball’s Autumn Leaves from the album Somethin’ Else is a master class on comping and would be a great place to start. Just start with a few bars and go from there. Just rhythms and basic voicings to start.

    Hi everyone! I know this is a very old topic but, I'm planning to buy this course later today, have read the whole thread and got convinced.

    Anyone who completed the course (the 9 modules) here to share how it improved their playstyle?

    'Please lose your smugness'? That's not right. He's merely expressing an opinion, in a very, clear, succint way, might I add.

    And yes we're just a bunch of schmoes trying to learn to play jazz using a variety of means, methods of study, , working on songs, and playing with people , who and throwing out ideas online. Apparently we haven't discovered the magic bullet but you have . I know, I know that's terrible and is infinitely inferior to what you're doing . Remind me again which "territory" band you are apprecing with , is it with cHick Webb or Fletcher Henderson ?

    Calling someone out on a 5 year old post? Really...?

    I thought I was merely posting a comment, rather than 'calling somebody out', but then I don't speak American. Don't worry I'll not bother you again.

    I like this method quite a bit, having used it as an electric bass player to help my soloing...probably should get back to it more diligently.
