Abstract

The electric guitar is a relatively new instrument in jazz. As a result, there is a lack of documentation concerning the variable roles that the electric guitar can assume. It is a extraordinarily versatile instrument, with the inbuilt potential to express a wide range of timbres, textures and dynamics that are unique to the guitar. For guitarists who are looking to pursue or continue their development in performance, it is important to be aware of the adjustments that are necessary from one particular musical setting to the next. In highly improvised settings, one's approach to sound, density of texture and dynamic sensitivity will need to be considered according to the surrounding instruments as well as stylistic elements appropriate to the music. An exploration of such considerations will be applied to ensemble settings, including the Jazz Trio. Articles, interviews with prominent guitarists, as well as analysis of sound recordings will be used to demonstrate the specific strategies that can be employed in adapting to various instrumental combinations.
