    Greg,

    Thank you for highlighting Ed’s guitar style. As a Canadian, I am proud of the attention he now merits. As a fairly advanced amateur player, I struggle to match up to his comping genius with my Telecaster. There is no single source of information on his unique melodic comping and the world awaits a consoldated reference book. The analysis of his work is scattered on the internet, including videos of his actual playing. A Bickert guitar “method” should be published.

    Chord phrase #3 is especially useful.
    It fits over measures 9-12 of “I’m Old Fashioned” beautifully
