    Did anybody ever transcribe Mike Moreno (or Adam Rogers, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Jonathan Kreisberg or another modern jazz guitar player) when he comps behind a solist ? Any help would be great.
    some examples :

    Hi Neither,
    I can't see the videos as I'm at work but there are two sources of information on this subject I would recommend:
    1. The book 'Jazz Guitar Comping' by Andrew Green;
    2. The 5 part video lesson series 'Modern Jazz Guitar' by Tim Lippencott at mikemasterclasses.com - the 'harmony' video has plenty of information on "contemporary" comping approaches.

    Thanks Benny for your answer.
    I've got Andrew Green's book. It's a great book but it talks about a much more traditional comping than Mike Moreno plays.
    I've got the Tim Lippincott video about modern Jazz Guitar (Harmony), and it's one of the best thing I saw on the subject.
    But my question is about the "real thing" great players play (voicing, rythm and harmony), about transcription of what they play.
    I search for this kind of thing, but for a modern guitar player :

    The tune is UMMG (Upper Manhattan Medical Group) by Billy Strayhorn.

    I don't know what your money situation is like, but you could email him about lessons. He teaches via Skype and could probably tell you his chordal philosophy directly. I haven't studied with him so I have no idea if he is a good teacher.

    Mike's one of my favorite players. I've transcribed a lot of his stuff, although I haven't really gotten into his comping so much--mostly single-note lines.
