Twelve rhythmic comping studies with chord grids, notation and tablature. The Frank Vignola Comping the Blues book shows guitar accompaniment in a short, precise manner. The comping etudes use a "stabbing" chord style, only throwing in chord voicings at the important places, not ringing throughout the entire piece. Frank shows us that less is definitely more. To get the full idea of Frank's exercises in this book, listen to the CDs from his Jamming the Blues series. Frank uses these exact ideas in those recordings.
