This episode is a round two with renowned NYC-based jazz guitarist, Peter Mazza (Ep. #010). We had such a huge response from listeners wanting to hear Peter go more in-depth on his playing, practices, and musical concepts that we recorded another episode focused on just that, with even more examples than before. In this episode we cover his rhythmic and harmonic concept, polyrhythms, how he practices triads and arpeggios, how he creates interesting intros and outros, the key principles of accompanying a vocalist, comping with a piano player as a guitarist, and much more. Although Peter is a guitarist, any serious musician will learn a ton from what he shares.
