Learn How to Master Something New with Fareed Haque's 1-2-3 Bossa Nova
Muddle some cachaca with lime and sugar, add crushed ice and take your Caipirinha to your favorite spot on Rio de Janeiro's famous Copacabana beach for the sunset. Bare feet wiggling in the sand, you watch the pretty people stroll aimlessly to the sounds of live bossa nova, itself a muddled blend of samba and jazz. The long tanned legs and bikinis are captivating but you play guitar and would much rather find the band and cop the guitarist's rhythm patterns and chord voicings. Stay right where you are mi amigo - Fareed Haque has you covered with 1-2-3 Bossa Nova.
In this accelerated introduction to bossa nova rhythm guitar for intermediate players and beyond, Fareed shows you the authentic bossa nova rhythms and chord voicings used by the Brazilian greats including Antonio Carlos Jobim, Joao Gilberto, Luis Bonfa, Baden Powell and many others. Fareed breaks the style down into one versatile rhythm pattern that underlies almost every bossa nova tune and then shows you the classic chord voicings used by most bossa nova guitarists. You'll put that all to work in 1-2-3 Bossa Nova as you learn and play along to six etudes, each of which follows an essential chord progression found in many famous bossa nova tunes.
So back to your Caipirinha and people watching for now. When you're done for the night, head to the shed with 1-2-3 Bossa Nova and prepare yourself for that gig on the beach.
