Watch the 1-2-3 Bossa Nova online guitar lesson by Fareed Haque from 1-2-3 Bossa Nova
Welcome to 1-2-3 Bossa Nova. Don’t be a square! Get hip with the real bossa nova. In this course I will show you the authentic bossa nova rhythms and chord voicings used by Brazilian greats including Joao Gilberto, Luis Bonfa, Baden Powell and many, many others. We will break this style down into one basic rhythm pattern that underlies almost every bossa nova rhythm. Then we will follow with the classic chord voicings used by most bossa nova guitarists. Last we will jam along to 6 etudes I've created specifically for this course. Each etude follows an essential chord progression found in a famous bossa nova tune:
Gilberto's Jam, Orphiana, No Note Samba, Mountain Bossa, Tall & Tan and Surf Samba - I'll let you figure out which tunes these etudes draw from - and in very short order you will be playing authentic bossa guitar!
