Join Date Mar 2011 Posts 140 As starting point, there was a booklet I believe by Louis Bellson about

"cut cho rds". Although it was intended for Piano, it just shows the concept. Or they mig ht have called them "split" chords, but anyway three-note chords generally. For guitar, although aimed specifically for big band rhythm chords, Check out Bu cky Pizzarelli's booklet called "Power Guitar". Cut chords, basically. Fairly al ien from the mainstream point of view, if you've never seen them before. But, vi rtually essential for a lot of big band stuff, and useful sometimes elsewhere. I regret I am not familiar with the booklet you've named.

The part about seconds and dropping a note down an octave is interesting. A l ot you can do with that one (not to hijack the thread) Take C,D,E and try to find how many different ways you can play those three note going from a cluster to playing them in 3 octaves. Next D E F, E F G and then F F# G.

I just bought the book, but I've been traveling and away from my guitar, so I ha ven't been able to try it out yet. Looks great. A lot of ideas for shell voicing s and triads. He says in the book that Shearing chords are impossible on the gui tar, so he provides three and four note voicings he calls "simulated Shearing-st yle block chords from drop 2 reductions."
