Watch the Bossa Blues: Part 1 online guitar lesson by Mimi Fox from Graduated Solos
This progression is a 16 bar piece in the key of C minor with the exception of measures 9-12 which are in the key of Db Major (a II,V,I in Db Major, to be exact). It is a fairly easy composition to have fun with. Notice in this first solo how the notes fit the chordal structure and how this simple melody has a beauty of it's own. You don't need a ton of notes to have a great melody line, but you need the RIGHT notes!
