How to comp on a Blues Jazz Progression

I’ve been asked many times how to comp on your usual jazz – blues progression. Here I give a few rhythmic/harmnic tips  on how to approach this topic.  The form and chords of our typical jazz/blues progression can be found in this other post. The material I talk about in the video is pretty basic and straight forward, but it’s amazing how effective it is.
