PERFORMANCE NOTES FOR GUITAR
Playing guitar in a big band is challenging but very rewarding. Here are a few specific tips for playing
guitar in a big band:
• Within the typical rhythm section, the guitar and piano must work especially close. Share the
camping duties. Always be sensitive to blend with the rhythm section and the ensemble.
• "Comping" means to accompany or compliment. Always keep it simple, tasteful and supportive.
Lessis more.
• Various responsibilities for the guitarist are: com ping, supporting the ensemble harmony and
rhythms, playing individual lines with wind players, soloing, and supporting various soloists.
• Slash marks indicate to camp using three or four note chords usually in a quarter note rhythm
pattern. Typically, the third and seventh are the most important notes in a seventh chord.
• Become skilled at reading both chord changes, written notes and creating chord voicings.
• Always be sensitive to your volume and sound. Begin by setting the tone controls on the
amplifier to the mid-point and then adjust as needed. For a rock tune, the goal is to approximate
an electric guitar sound, but for a jazz swing tune, strive for a hollow body jazz guitar
sound with dark overtones. Listen to examples of these different types of instruments for reference.
• The guitar part is a guide and suggestion of what to play. Depending on your ability and
experience, you can play the part as written or embellish but with good taste and musicality. Always listen!
• Generally, in a big band chart, when there is a written out part with no chord symbols, the arranger
wishes the part played as written. When there are only chord changes and/or slashes,
then comp in the style of the chart.
• For a sound that blends, consider using medium thickness picks which will give the sound a
bright, acoustic quality and hold the pick loosely between the thumb and index finger.
• For a swing style comp of quarter notes, strum straight quarter notes trying to cut off (mute)
the sound of the chord right after striking the strings. Strum from the elbow; giving a bright,
swinging sound that propels the rhythm section forward.
• The guitarist's quarter note comping style should perfectly mesh so that the guitar and bass merge into one big sound.
• If the chord has extensions you don't recognize, play the third and seventh (sixth) of the chord.
There is a two-measure count-off click at the beginning of each play-along track

Vehicle:
1) A rock style chart, dig in and play more aggressivelythan usual and strive for a brighter sound, but
don't overdo the volume.
2) The written camping rhythms are also played by the piano, so listen, blend and lock in the feel.
3) Measure 65 isa rubato trombone solo. In 66, the drumset playsa fill in-tempo to bring you in for the last two measures.

Sax to the Max:
1) In the introduction, play the written notes with the saxesand brass.Listenand blend.
2) This chart callsfor basiccamping in the jazz swing style. Playquarter notes with a muted sound.
3) If the chord hasextensionsyou don't recognize, focus on the third and seventh of the chord.

Nutcracker Rock:
1) Playmeasures 5-8 with a bell-like sound-play it clear and let it ring.
2) Although this isa rock style chart, avoid a radical rock tone-blend.
3) At measure 37, listen and match the articulation and phrasing with the horn players ...
