Price per Unit (piece):

Auto-comping is a neologism that I use for a new technique that I've been developing.  

Auto-comping is thinking of the guitar in a Polyphonic way, like a pianist, a big band or an orchestra. The auto-comping offers us many artistic possibilities, such as playing very simple lines and then filling in with chords.  Very simple lines that remain sounding while dense chords appear.  Also, a few notes like guide tones, soloing with chords, chords with voice leading, etc.

I think that the first player that used these techniques was the genius Lenny Breau. 

Other great players that use auto-comping or self-comping are Ed Bickert, Jim Hall, Ron Eschete and Vic Juris. These ideas are useful for trio and solo setting, as well as for composing and improvising. 

I love the modern Jazz harmony like clusters and quartal chords, but auto- comping can be used in more traditional ways as well. 

I have included 2-line ideas with this as well.

Thanks for listening and watching!
