This is my tribute to Baden Powell. One of the greatest Brazilian guitar players of all time.

What is interesting in this song is that he used to play fast parts using the middle and index finger in several strings as if he were playing scales. He used to also use this technique to play fast rhythms.

Take a look at 1 min and 32 sec.


Here is the song as recorded in the album "27 horas de estúdio" in 1968 at 21 min 56 sec. Unfortunately there is no video showing Baden playing this version and using this technique.


And here some advice for beginners on how to practice acoustic guitar as well as any kind of instrument.


I hope you enjoy.
