Nothing is more comforting than a Bossa Nova rhythm on a nylon-string guitar.
Celso Machado is the guitarist from Brazil. He has a large output of works for classical (nylon-string) guitar by itself or in combination with other instruments, particularly the flute.
One of my students is a big João Gilberto fan, and she asked if we could look at South American styles. To help her and the online community, I decided to tryout Soundslice to create a short and accessible example.
You can check it out below but I suggest you access the “full version” for a better experience. On Soundslice you have options to loop, show the fretboard, change the speed, enable a metronome, record your version to share, or leave comments. (Please follow me there, as well!)
Where should we go next? 🤔
