Old School Jazz Comping in the Style of Django Reinhardt -- Rhythm Jazz Guitar Lesson


How’s it going, guys? This is John McClennan
here with guitarcontrol.com, bringing
you this video lesson. I want to show you sort of
a Django style comping. Definitely an old school way.
You’ll hear it in jazz as well.

We’re going to start on a G major 7 here: 3rd fret,
4th fret, 4th fret, 3rd fret, and on all these
chords I hit the bass note and then I hit the
chord — the rest of the chord and I kind of choke it off.

So here’s the first movement: G major 7 to G
sharp diminished 7. This would be 4, 3, 4, 3.
And then A minor 7: 5, 5, 5, 5. And then I do
that same movement again where I’m just filling-in
those chromatic notes with diminished chords. So 6, 5, 6, 5,
and then on the III chord, B minor 7 to our typical
jazz turnaround, 3, 6, 2, 5, 1. So this is B minor 7,
to E7 sharp 9: 7, 6, 7 8; to A minor 7 to D7 flat 9.
So this is 5, 4, 5, 4; resolving to G major 7.

Another way you could do this, too, is just without
the bass note and just playing… So really cool stuff for comping.

So be sure to click the link below for the tab
and we’ll see you in the next video.
Thanks for watching.
