PAT­TERN 9 BOSSA NOVA

Guitar Techniques - - LEARN -

Orig­i­nally pop­u­larised by An­tônio Car­los Jo­bim and Brazil­ian gui­tarists such João Gil­berto, this style is the sta­ple ac­com­pa­ni­ment tech­nique for soft, latin play­ing. The chordal em­pha­sis is mostly on the off-beat, with the thumb main­tain­ing a sense of place in the bar by high­light­ing beats 1 and 3.

Ex­am­ple 9: No­tice the high-voiced chords on the top strings. These triad shapes are use­ful in a va­ri­ety of sit­u­a­tions, and should be noted for fu­ture ref­er­ence.
