Katie Derham travels to Rio de Janeiro (where her father was born) to explore the story behind Brazil's most famous and enduring song. Written in 1962 by Antonio Carlos Jobim with lyrics by Vinicius de Moraes, with a later English translation by Norman Gimbel, The Girl from Ipanema defines the moment Brazil charmed the world stage with a laidback song about a haunting woman.
The distinctive sound of Brazilian bossa nova guitar has permeated the musical landscape for fifty years, influencing singers, instrumentalists and songwriters throughout the world. Based on a melding of jazz voicings and samba rhythms, this gently swinging fingerpicking-based style will bring new colors and rhythms to all your guitar accompaniments and solos. Aaron Gilmartin builds your bossa nova guitar technique step-by-step, providing chordal exercises, melodic passages and syncopated picking along with invaluable guitar advice and musical knowledge.
