I was listening to Kurt's 2006 NGW clinic today and was really struck by his demonstration of putting a chord on every beat of a tune. It kind of sounds like stride piano and I have recordings of Ted Greene doing something along those same lines. It really sounds amazing.
If anyone has ever checked out any of Ted Greene's comping exercises on the website set up to distribute his lessons, there are quite a few similarities to what Kurt plays in the example. I am curious if anyone has checked them out and what you think of them? I wonder if Kurt ever studied w/ Ted?
If you haven't checked them out, there are some really great ways to expand your vision of harmony on the guitar. Here is a really nice example on the tune 'When Sunny Gets Blue'
Just tossing it out there in case anyone digs that sound.
