Brazilian masterpieces easy arranged for guitar
Annotations and reference section in German and English language
Book & CD, 82 pages, music score and tablature
The colonization of Brazil in the 16th century lead to the emergence and development of new cultural traditions. In music, the European styles of the Portuguese colonizers began to blend with the rhythmic dances of African slaves, resulting in a style that is unmistakably Brazilian. Though highly diverse, all of Brazil’s music shares a common trait of an inseparable mix of classical elements and folk roots.
Among the pieces included in this book are fiery, traditional dances like the samba, maxixe, and lundu, as well as sentimental, lyrical modinhas.
All the pieces are arranged for students with about three years of playing experience, and should be very playable for all developing guitarists.
