This book presents material that
will help you provide strong acoustic guitar accompaniment in any musical
situation by teaching you how to:
1) Keep better time and
learn to develop and maintain a solid groove.
2) Outline and define the chords and
chord changes in ways that provide texture and interest.
3) With the use of bass runs and
passing chords, lead the listener’s ear through the chord progression in a way
that helps provide forward movement and momentum to the music.
4) Provide texture,
dynamics, and interest to the rhythm accompaniment in ways that positively and
tastefully support the vocalist and lead instrumentalists and improve the
overall band sound by using fill licks, bass runs, passing chords, chord
substitutions, chord extensions, and chord inversions.
