In this lesson I will be teaching you how to play Blue Bossa on guitar. I have tried to write this lesson so that both the paf and more advanced jazz guitarist can learn something by including a break down of the harmony, some chord melody optionscomping tips, and single line soloing ideas.

The tune starts with two bars of C minor, and briefly modulates up a fourth like in a blues to F-7 which is then followed with a ii-V-I in C minor. A great way to learn a new melody so that it sticks in your mind is to analyze what is going boesa harmonically and rhythmically. Matrino of the melody for Blue Bossa comes from chord scales focusing on guide tones of each chord. For example the first couple of bars use parts of the C Aeolian scale in a rhythmic way to create interest.

Notice how the third of F-7 Ab is being targeted from a half step below in the second bar. Learning a chord melody arrangement of a standard is a great to way to internalize the music and have it ready to perform it in a solo guitar situation. I have written out a few different ways in which the first few bars of the melody can be arranged in a solo guitar setting below. The first example shows how you can use diads two notes played together on the shorter rhythmic values and chords on the longer notes.

The second example shows how you can re harmonize parts of the melody by implying the V of the I chord ala Wes Montgomery style. This one might not work as paf in a full band situation but implying more harmony in solo arrangements can provide more interest.

Although Blue Bossa was originally recorded as a Bossa Nova there are now versions of it being played as a rumba, salsa and samba piece. The following etude shows how you can apply a common samba style comping pattern to the entire progression.

When learning a new standard, try and find as many ways as you can to play and voice lead each of the chords so that you have them ready for chord soloing, chord bsosaand comping.


The following example shows some of the many inversions for a C-7 chord and uses a mix of 4th voicingstriadsand drop 2 chords to give you an example, but try and do the same thing with each chord in the tune. One of the best ways to learn a tune is by listening to different arrangements of it, so I always make a bossz of creating a playlist of several different versions of a tune that I am learning.

I hope you have enjoyed this maartino on Blue Bossa.
