Make Your Acoustic Rhythm Playing Interesting! Part 6 - Bossa Nova
4

In part 6 we head to Brazil to learn about Bossa Nova. This is a very popular style of guitar playing and once again with a little bit of practice can be easily added to your guitar playing toolkit.

As usual this is a continuation in our series, so if a technique or concept isn't clear, feel free to go back and review previous lessons (In particular, Part 1 for the bassline concept and Part 4 for fingerpicking)

Part 1 - Adding a Bassline

Part 2 - Adding a Bassline Advanced

Part 3 - Carter Picking

Part 4 - Fingerpicking

Part 5 - Travis Picking

NOTE: - This is just the very beginnings of Bossa Nova. I no way am I claiming that by watching a 13 minute video that you will master a 60 year old guitar style! You will however learn the basics and gain some practical knowledge in how to make your accompaniment more interesting.
