LESSON EIGHT: ADVANCED STUDIES

Push "play" on the slider bar below to hear this set being played.



The slider bar below will let you hear another way of playing the chords above. Part of a piano players job in a group of Jazz musicians is to play the chords in a certain style. This style is called "Comping" or to "Comp." "Comp." is an abbreviation for : To Accompany other musicians.

"Comping" means to play the chords intermittently and fill in brief and mostly blank spaces left open in the music by the other players. This is NOT the same as playing "Fills." We will discuss this technique later.
