Joao Gilberto Youtube

Here’s a Youtube of the great Brazilian guitar player called Joao Gilberto, famous from the sixties for his work with Astrid Gilberto and Antonio Carlos Jobim (also named Tom Jobim).  This the classic song Girl from Ipanema, a tune that has been ruined by many 🙂 , but when played well it is a masterpiece. Like any tune, it’s what you do with it that counts.  This recording was made 40 years after the original.

For more beautiful guitar, check out Paco De Lucia
