Bossa Nova Baby

Bossa nova is at its core a rhythm based on samba. Samba combines the rhythmic patterns and feel originating in former African slave communities. Samba's emphasis on the second beat carries through to bossa nova (to the degree that it is often notated in 2/4 time). 

When played on the guitar, in a simple one-bar pattern the thumb plays the bass notes on 1 and 2, while the fingers pluck the chords in unison on the two eighth notes of beat one, followed by the second sixteenth note of beat two. Two-measure patterns usually contain a syncopation into the second measure. 

Overall, the rhythm has a swaying feel rather than the swinging feel of jazz. As bossa nova composer Carlos Lyra describes it in his song "Influência do Jazz", the samba rhythm moves "side to side" while jazz moves "front to back".

OK so this is how we're gonna do this.....

An Ill friend once posted this in my honor.

I was touched.

I'm back (as if anyone cares) to try my hand at this once more.

Of course I've forgotten how, but no matter!

I'm sure it'll come back to me.

The Blogger people, in their infinite yet somehow unfathomable wisdom, will not let me use my own name.

I've been forced to add a cheesey 'z' as in 'pixelmuttz'.

but you can still call me pixelmutt without the 'z'.

So let me begin by posting a video I uploaded some time ago to youtube.

It has more than " 1,900,000 views " !!

Pretty impressive, don't you agree?

This is going to be painful.
