Hey Guys I'm new to this board.

I'm not really a jazz guitarists but a composer who wants to gain some special influences.
I'm in search of jazz rhythm guitarists. Comping but especially arpeggio's and enlightning chord work. Lots of open strings, odd inversions etc.
Are there any players you know of that use this sort of things.
Yes? Name them and their key albums/songs.

Thanks. Very Happy

What you describe above is used by pretty well all jazz guitarists in different degrees.

You would have to supply an artist or two to narrow down your request. Then people would get an idea at what you're looking for

This guitarist I saw live, plays by himself, (or sometimes with a bassist), and nothing else, but sounds amazingly full.

He uses tunings, and open voiced chords ALL the time! He is something to see and hear....

The thing is, I dont know #### about jazz guitarist.
The only remotely one I know is Larry Carlton, but I dont know if he's really jazz.

Maybe the way to describe it is the "chord/melody" aproach. I dunno.

Yo,

Hi Valk, I think what others have shared so far has been right on. I might add one more suggestion. Have you listened to any of "TUCK and PATTY"....???? This guy, Tuck, can really come up with some really strange yet delicious open string jazz chord voicings for comping behind Patty's vocal work.....might give that stuff an ear if you haven't already.

Good luck.....Russ

The Barry Galbraith "Comping" Book is a great reference for classic chord melody comping. It comes with a CD with all 11 tracks played by Barry himself, one of the true masters of jazz chord melody/comping. You will love it
