INTRODUCTION

Bossa nova, an internationally popular style of Brazilian music, was originally developed in Rio de Janeiro, in the late fifties. Precise definition of its origins is uncertain given that there were a number of contributing factors and influences, many of which took place simultaneously and all of which can be considered legitimate precursors. Most musical historians agree, however, that the official "birth" of bossa nova occurred with the 1958 release of Elizeth Cardoso's Can980 de Amor Demais, on which a young guitarist named Joao Gilberto played a song called "Chega de Saudade" written by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Vinicius de Moreas. The second defining moment, and the one that truly established the classic sound of bossa nova guitar, was the release of Gilberto's first album as a solo artist, also titled Chega de Saudade, later that same year. It was on this album that Gilberto beautifully demonstrated for the first time all of the principal rhythmic, harmonic, and melodic characteristics that have come to define bossa nova.

Gilberto's work on that record, as well as on his two subsequent albums, was musical genesi. It influenced not only the entire bossa nova movement but also subsequent generations of Brazilian pop musicians. It also established a strong connection with American jazz musicians, many who began to include elements of bossa nova in their own compositions and repertoires. This, in turn, led to a number of albums that had an unprecedented impact around the world. Many of these recordings are still popular today, including such classics as Antonio Carlos Jobim's Garota de Ipanema (Girl from Ipanema), the title track of which is arguably the most popular bossa nova song ever written. Bossa Nova Guitar is intended for a wide range of guitarists, from those with little experience in complex musical styles like jazz, Samba, or Bolero to highly trained professional guitarists looking to expand their musical palettes. To meet the needs of such diverse groups, the first chapter provides a background in bossa nova-related theory so that the reader can better understand the basic concepts that will then be applied in the examples and exercises found in the later chapters.
