I been hooked on Tommy for ages. As someone I really respect once said &quot;he
has chops&quot;. It took me a while to understand what chops meant (went through
definitions from joints of meat to sideburns hairstyles till I figured out
it meant he could play well).

#2: origin of the slang term "chops" (was Re: Saw Tommy Emmanuel live last night - a review)

Here is my speculative entymology:

1. &quot;Chop&quot; means &quot;food&quot; in many forms of pidgin English.
2. The slang for food was extended to also mean the mouth, into which
you put the food.
3. A strong trumpet player must have a strong embouchure, i.e., strong
chops (mouth). So among musicians, chops was used to refer to a good
trumpet player's strong embouchure.
4. Then that meaning got extended to referring to musical technique in
general.
5. Then someone took the concept of chopping wood, and applied the term
&quot;woodshedding&quot; to building chops.

I figured chops as in mouth, was just shorted from choppers as in teeth
jaws etc. Man, that dog had a mean set of choppers.

&gt; 3. A strong trumpet player must have a strong embouchure, i.e., strong
&gt; chops (mouth). So among musicians, chops was used to refer to a good
&gt; trumpet player's strong embouchure.

This goes for sax or pretty much any other wind player too, they all
need a good embouchure. Or embrochure as people often spell/say it.

&gt; 4. Then that meaning got extended to referring to musical technique in
&gt; general.

Chops = teeth/mouth/embouchure/etc.

Axe = instrument, as in &quot;He's got an axe to grind.&quot;

Woodshed = The place where one gains competence with the axe.

In an interview with Walter Becker, he was explaining why his guitar playing
was featured more on the recent album. He said something like, &quot;There were
places in those tunes where my chop would fit in. I only have one chop, but
I've perfected it.&quot;
