Aquarela do Brasil (Brazil) – Bossa Nova Guitar Lesson #16: Partido Alto Phrase Variation

November 2, 2019


Rhythmic phrase 3113 played at half speed This phrase is played mainly with staccato. Only beats 4 and 11 are played with legato. The last beat is muted with right hand fingertips… at the time of playing the bass note on beat 1 Other notes may be muted by lifting left hand fingers The same phrase played in normal tempo The intro serves to establish a stable tempo The sequence of 3 strong beats… and finally the syncopated Partido Alto phrase Switch to legato Barre remains on 2nd fret to speed up chord transition Place the barre for F#m7 before lifting the fingers 2, 3 and 4 Place the fingers 1, 3 and 4 before 2 for the bass of F#m7/-5 Use fingers 2, 3 and 4 for Em7 so that 3 remains… on 3rd string for Gm6 1, 3 and 4 remain on the strings for G13/-9 2 and 4 remain on the strings 2 still on the 2nd string Em7 instead of Em9 G#7/-5 as a bridge between the two verses 2nd verse is played with the same rhythmic phrase… and still with legato Just place finger 4 on the 1st string for Ebdim Still the same chord progression as in the 1st verse… but now modified a bit. Finger 2 remains on the 3rd string Finger 3 remains on the 2nd string Barre on the 2nd fret in preparation for B7/+5 Back to playing staccato Few different variations of the same chord progression… to make the end more interesting.

    This is so well done! The only thing I regret, is that this didn't exist when I was 16 and had infinite amount of time to practice! Thanks you very much. I'm learning a lot from your videos.

    the Bm/A at 2:46 is a bar on the 7th fret of the eb and g string not the eighth

  • Reply Diego July 13, 2017 at 5:40 pm

    In rhythmic phrase 3113, when used with chord changes, the very last sixteenth note plays the notes of the next chord? Even though the 16th note isn't part of the next measure?

    Sounds like a little story, a journey with its many chords following each other in so simple, natural and yet charming way. And the wonder is how the singing goes along with this music- they are so different, but finally an amazingly sounding song is born.
    Thank you for your work, it s very helpful.

    Brasil, meu Brasil brasileiro
    Meu mulato inzoneiro
    Vou cantar-te nos meus versos

    O Brasil, samba que dá
    Bamboleio, que faz gingar
    O Brasil do meu amor
    Terra de Nosso Senhor
    Brasil! Brasil! Pra mim! Pra mim!

    Ô, abre a cortina do passado
    Tira a mãe preta do cerrado
    Bota o rei congo no congado
    Brasil! Brasil!

    Deixa cantar de novo o trovador
    À merencória luz da lua
    Toda canção do seu amor
    Quero ver essa Dona caminhando
    Pelos salões, arrastando
    O seu vestido rendado
    Brasil! Brasil! Prá mim! Prá mim!

    Brasil, terra boa e gostosa
    Da morena sestrosa
    De olhar indiscreto

    O Brasil, samba que dá
    Para o mundo admirar
    O Brasil do meu amor
    Terra de Nosso Senhor
    Brasil! Brasil! Prá mim! Prá mim!

    Esse coqueiro que dá coco
    Onde eu amarro a minha rede
    Nas noites claras de luar
    Ô! Estas fontes murmurantes
    Onde eu mato a minha sede
    E onde a lua vem brincar

    Ô! Esse Brasil lindo e trigueiro
    É o meu Brasil brasileiro
    Terra de samba e pandeiro
    Brasil! Brasil!

    Brasil, mi Brasil brasileño
    Mi mulato unzonoso
    Te cantaré en mis versos

    Brasil, samba que da
    Bamboleio, eso te hace brillar
    El Brasil de mi amor
    Tierra de Nuestro Señor
    Brasil, Brasil, para mí, para mí!

    Oh, abre la cortina del pasado
    Saca a la madre negra de la sabana
    Pon al rey del Congo en el congado
    ¡Brasil!

    Deja que el trovador cante de nuevo
    A la luz de la luna merencory
    Cada canción de tu amor
    Quiero ver a esta señora caminando
    A través de los pasillos, arrastrando
    Tu vestido de encaje
    Brasil, Brasil, para mí, para mí, para mí!

    Brasil, tierra buena y sabrosa
    De la morena sestroosa
    De miradas indiscretas

    Brasil, samba que da
    Para que el mundo pueda admirar
    El Brasil de mi amor
    Tierra de Nuestro Señor
    Brasil, Brasil, para mí, para mí, para mí!

    Ese árbol de coco que da coco
    Donde até mi red
    En las noches brillantes de la luz de la luna
    Estas fuentes murmurmurantes
    Donde sacia mi sed
    Y donde la luna viene a jugar

    Oh, esta hermosa, trigueiro Brasil
    Es mi Brasil brasileño
    Tierra de samba y pandereta
    ¡Brasil!

    Composición: Ary Barroso
