How To Play Bossa Nova Guitar

 

Bossa Nova Guitar , some players who are born in the right country know how to play it because they got it genetically or by osmosis from growing up in the environment … think Brasil,   Others need to learn it.    I was looking around for a simple tutorial on playing Bossa Nova Guitar and found this site .  Bossa Nova Guitar   The tutorial has an mp3 audio track to follow and is written in standard music notation.  In the 60’s Bossa Nova came to the fore with players like Joao Gilberto Laurindo Almeida and particularly the music of Jobim

Check out the Tutorial  Bossa Nova it has a few reasonably simple chords
Even if your eading skills aren’t strong, just break it down and count it.

Country Blues Guitar Scales

Acoustic Guitar Country Blues players:  Thought I’d republish this doco of Scales which I put together a couple of years back.  The fingerings of some are little unusual, and my reasons for doing them this way is intentional just to create a little more interest and snapping the mind out of its normal patterns.  How you apply them is the next step, I will write a simple article about that soon.

Enjoy

Emily and the Woods – Never Play Youtube

There are many acoustic guitar players who just want to play and sing and not necessarily play like virtuosos Vicente Amigo,  Pierre Bensusan, or Michael Hedges.  So I thought I’d do a number of short acoustic guitar articles / posts on some of the new singer guitarists who play material which sound  musical and is based around simple chord patterns.  The following tune is by Emily and the Woods called Never Play
