The audio in this lesson is kind of wack. Huge apologies. I was messing with some new settings for my mic hoping it would get a cleaner signal. I think we all know THAT didn't work! Ha.
Try and put up with it for now and focus on using the pdf and just playing through it on your own. The analysis section with me talking isn't terrible, but the part at the beginning with me demoing the etude is rough to sit through. I'm going to try and re-record at least that part and post it in the next week or so. For now, enjoy the pdf and the parts of the video you're willing to deal with.

Jazz Guitar Comping: Week 4 of 8
Drop 2? Drop 3? Drop 2 and 4? Are you getting caught up and confused with this stuff?
There are alternative ways of creating four-note voicings on the guitar... and often times, I find them to be superior in the voicings they produce, the inversions they lead to, and the melodic movement and voice leading that they bring about. Check out this weeks etude to hear some of them. Download the free pdf of the etude to follow along with the in-depth analysis in the video. There's a lot going on, so make sure to have the written out etude in hand to look at while watching this video!
