    How the lessons work

    bossa nova guitarI record a section of a video for each part of the song where I explain and show you, measure by measure, how to play each chord, rhythm, chord progression, and each phrase of the melody in detail. Next, I show you how to play a few measures of the song at a slow tempo, then another few, until finally you have learned the entire section.

    To go along with my video explanations, you also have the sheet music with standard notation, guitar tabs, and chord charts grouped according to the skill level of the lesson. Also, there are links to each composer’s biography, and links to YouTube so you can listen to the songs. Whenever possible, I put links to English translations of the lyrics in case you want to know what the original lyrics are about.

    In addition to all this, you have an audio guide to help you with Portuguese pronunciation when the lesson is about how to play and sing the song, and you can easily set loop points on the video player to repeat a certain part of the video so you can play along.

    Finally, you have a forum for members where you can ask question and discuss the lessons and other topics.
