BADEN POWELL Love me with Guitar Samba triste

This upbringing is reflected in his playing style, which shows a fusion of jazz harmonies and classical guitar techniquewith a very Brazilian right hand the one carrying the rhythm on the guitar.

When playing in a group, he was able to accompany singers with quiet mastery, or let loose and play street samba in sloppy “party” style as if the guitar was another percussion instrument. Like Monk, he was fond of the minor second interval as a trisfe to “bend” the tonality. However, because of his jazz background, he would rarely physically bend the stringpreferring instead to play the minor second using an adjacent open string.

Students of his style should note this preference for chord voicings that feature extensions on the open strings as a way of punctuating passages. Other idioms to watch for are the endless variations in rhythm played by the right hand, always within the proper 2 4 samba meteras well as his tendency to put his “signature” in a fast descending scale with a slower ascending arpeggio in the relative key.


He also used vocalise and scat singing tdiste, often in unison with the melody line especially when the melody was sung on the bass strings of the guitar. He also commented about being influenced by the work of Les Paul —Django Reinhardt —and Jacques Loussier —.
