TICO-TICO NO FUB
I would like to show you a brazilian
style of music called Chorinho. This style is older than Bossa Nova and
it is more near of Samba style.
This style was born in Rio de Janeiro
in 1870. At first, it was only a brazilian manner of playing european styles
like schottisch and waltz for examples. Translating Choro means "Cry",
and it's because of the instruments used and the manner of playing them that
gave a melancholic feeling for the style.
Afterwards, Choro create a self form and names like Ernesto Nazareth and Chiquinha
At beginning, it was only instrumental. Its major characteristic is improvisation.
When Choro is faster,
the name is Chorinho (Little Cry !?).
Anyway, here goes a chorinho by Zequinha
de Abreu (1880-1935), one of the greatest names of brazilian music.
As the great number of Choros, the
form of this style has 3 parts A, B and C.
This is the parts chart of this music--> || A part | B
part | A part | C part | A part ||
I will show you in this lesson the
A part. Soon I intend to show you the remaining parts.
Thank you and, any doubt, contact
PS: I devote this
lesson for the great player Charles Gacsi, an expert of brazilian styles too.
I'm sure he earns more but it's all I can do for now.
This Masterpiece is owned by Zequinha
de Abreu and this lesson serves only for studying purposes.
