Rhythm is much more important than notes. This is very true for jazz and certainly for comping.
The easiest way to learn some new rhythms for your comping is to come up with some small riffs and practice playing those through a chord progression. In this jazz rhythm guitar lesson, I am going to show you 5 great variations on some great Comping rhythms and how they sound through a Blues In F.
Having a solid comping skill set is very important for functioning as a jazz guitarist. Especially if you want to get asked as a sideman, and actually it also really helps you play better solos because you can think with the rhythm section.
This way of really thinking in rhythms as phrases are really important because you can’t think about the notes, you have to hear them.
