Watch the Week 2: Partido Alto online guitar lesson by Doug Munro from The 8 Essential Latin Guitar Styles

The samba is another Brazilian music style that is similar to the bossa nova but played at a faster tempo. In this lesson, we'll concentrate on the partido alto, which is a sub style in samba. It's easy to learn and it has it's own clave as well. Along with the video, I have attached an MP3 to practice with as well as PDF's for the chord changes and each rhythm with TAB.

Make sure that you go and listen to some samba recordings. You can start with Trio da Paz, João Bosco, Luiz Bonfá, and go from there.
