Lesson notes

In this lesson we’re going to learn a new rhythmic accompaniment pattern for the bossa nova groove. This video builds upon the previous 4 Bossa Nova lessons, Quick Tip Nos. 5-­8, so if you haven’t already you may want to check those out, as they provide important foundation for this segment. We’re going to take a new bossa nova rhythm, which is more of a relaxed groove than the rhythm we learned in the previous lessons, and apply it to 5 different harmonic contexts, including 4 2-­bar patterns featuring 1, 2, 3 and 4 chords, and an 8­-bar pattern featuring the final 4­-chord sequence.
