This lesson is one chorus of simple jazz blues comping and then a talk about a skeleton voicing plus a few variations and some ideas for variations. I also discuss a few secret tricks that most people don't think about with chords but that work really well to play more complicated phrases or embellish comping and chord solos!!

One of the most important types of voicings you want to have in your vocabulary if you want to play jazz, blues or R&B is the drop2 voicing. In this video I am going to show you a simple way to apply drop2 chords to a 12-bar jazz blues with just a few voicings and some variations that are easy to get into your playing.

Along the way I am also going to cover some phrasing and rhythm ideas to really lay down the groove!! Drop2 chords are in many ways the go-to voicings that you need when comping in a mainstream or hardbop jazz style!!
