The masterclass covers these five primary Brazilian genres from a duo accompaniment standpoint and addresses some solo guitar and phrasing aspects:
samba canção bossa nova samba choro baião
Each genre is culminated by a duo performance of a famous Brazilian piece.
For these performances I am joined by my longtime guitarist colleague Joe Ravo.
For more rhythmically complex Brazilian genres such as samba and baião, first I demonstrate essential Brazilian percussion source rhythms, then adapt them to directly to guitar comping.
The COMPLETE MASTERCLASS VIDEO is divided into EIGHT SEGMENTS.
Samba and Baião are divided into two segments because of their more detailed treatment.
