Tom, you used the term "comp" and "comp pattern" in your Evil Ways Song Tutorial. I haven't heard it used before. I think I gotta feel for it watching to videos; however, I'd appreciate a quick definition or description. Thanks!

Hey thereā€¦ Yeah, I wonder when I use that term, how many folks are familiar with it! It is short for "accompaniment". So basically, any time there is an accompaniment or rhythm pattern it can be called a "comp" or "comp pattern" for short. You'll hear guys say "comp for this section" at jam sessions and such, good term to be familiar with I think! :)


Have fun!!!

Cheers, Tom~
