In this class, John and Micky use the well known standard “Have You Met Miss Jones” to demonstrate a number of important concepts regarding comping, soloing and reharmonization of the basic diatonic harmony of the song. Double stops (two note voicings), and voice leading are also demonstrated; in addition, John and Micky discuss the importance of space, compositional intention and the utilization of the melody to internalize the form.
- Sub-topic 1: Using specific rhythmic values to develop comping skills
- Sub-topic 2: The use of double stops and counterpoint in comping
- Sub-topic 3: The importance of space and compositional intention when soloing.
Expected outcome from class:
Develop new skills in areas of comping, soloing and basic reharmonization of diatonic progressions.
