Very basic Left Hand Comping Handout for Piano

I’m on faculty as a piano player at the Great Basin Jazz Camp at the College of Southern Idaho this week. Bruce Forman and Carl Saunders are the artists-in-residence at the camp, and Dr. David Joyner, Wayne Bliss, and several others are here as well teaching. It’s been a great learning experience, and I’m having a great time teaching and playing at the camp.  I came up with a comping handout for the students to help them learn about left-handed voicings. Here is the handout for you!  You should transpose these two voicings into all 12 keys after you learn them.  I will give a more detailed description of left hand comp at a later date.  Enjoy!
