  • Hi GMC!

    In this lesson we are going to take a look at some Bossa Nova rhythms, from "basic" patterns to more syncopated ones, including
    the typical bass movement.

    We will look at five patterns and we must keep in mind that each pattern is actually interchangeable to create variations, fills etc.

    Here's the harmonic progression (a classic one in bossa nova) with typical jazz chords :
    C69/ C69 / D9 / D9 / D-9 / G7b9 / C69 / Db9

    About the G7b9 : with the flat 9 on the bass we could also see this chord as a Abdim13.

    You'll find more instructions under each video section.

    Gear used :
    Godin nylon (ACS SA).
    Some reverb added in the DAW.
