It seems to me that comping is very much important when you want to sing your favorite song over an acoustic guitar for any solo presention. The bad thing is I my comping is limited to basic open and bar chords. I really envy those who can make any popular song to sound very amazing over an acoustic guitar. You see the challenge is that it is only your voice and one acoustic guitar. Anyone can suggest a book which covers techniques on comping, spread voicings, other voicing that sounds great over acoustic guitar, chord progressions and the likes... I've heard that Ted Greene's book is good but which book of him? I just want my solo performance sounds best over my acoustic guitar. Thanks guys...

donīt know a book of this, but a big chord chart:

www.guitarspace.de

- click on the word ---- Gitarre ---- at the left side
- click on ----- chord - chards
- mark them with the mouse
- copy it into word
- mark it again and make it a bit smaller

- now you can print it on paper Very Happy

now this have nothing to do with jazz, but it helped me to sing jazz,
you can tune your singing voice too if you want to do a performance, do you know: gregorian masters of chant chapter IV? , itīs a cd to sing along, Very Happy at the background you can hear a guitar and you can try to play along, these are pop songs with a gregorian voicing maybe you allready know them Very Happy
