An EZ Guide to a Professional Approach to Blues Comping

Class 1 - Comping a Dominant Blues in Any Key

In this short class (three 6 minute vids!), I'll show you:

  • one easy chord grip and a four-to-the-floor strumming pattern to play the essential changes of a 12 bar dominant blues in G.
  • a second grip and a swing strumming pattern to play the basic changes of a dominant blues in any key.
  • how to add a VI7-II7-V7-I7 turnaround to a dominant blues.


This class is perfect for beginners and advancing students can go further by enrolling in the follow up courses that teach other Freddie Green grips including minor 7th and major 6th.

Freddie Green was the long-time rhythm guitarist of the Count Basie Orchestra and pioneered a simple, but effective set of chord grips and strumming pattern that helped make the Basie's rhythm section the envy of every band of that era.
