Hi, I play in the rhythm section of a band (guitar, bass, accordion) and in a duet with guitar. Music is somewhere between swing and jazz. In both settings, my biggest struggle is how to comp such that the guitar can solo. Usually the guitar is doing the main rhythm work and I do more some kind of syncopated cord or fills or play melody, but then when the guitar wants to solo I have to jump in and somehow have to fill the gap such that the grove continues. Of course an accordion cannot replace a guitar and it seems that many bands simply solve this by having two guitars. And of course there are also artists like Richard Galliano who can perfectly accompagnat a guitar in a solo setting, but his kind of coming feels like out of what a normal guy than me can do. Anyway any thoughts and ideas are welcome.
