Hi Isabelle.
You have embarked on a most demanding Brazilian piece and have so far made a good start.

I hope I'm not being too bold to say that your beat needs some more work. I feel I can say this because I have also been working of this piece for some time now and I still cannot play it at the tempo you are attempting here (I'm getting close, though :) )

To achieve that, I have been working on it with a metronome at a slow tempo to make sure that I can not only hit all the right notes, but that I also can keep the beat going non stop, including the fast scales.

With a 2/4 beat, you are playing it at around 100bpm. You could set it at 60bpm and focus on accuracy first. When you feel comfortable at 60, go up a notch or two and start again, always making sure you don't lose the beat. I think this approach will bring you up to the next level on that wonderful piece. :wink:

I hope this helps. All the best to you.

I enjoy your great recordings of early music. :casque:

That is an "oldie" - I remember it well. An enjoyable listen. Thank you for posting.

Hi Isabelle,

I live near the city where Zequinha de Abreu was born. He arranged it for piano, originally. Who made this arrangement that you are playing??

thank you!

Hi Fabiano,

If you live in Sao Paulo, you could get in touch with the wonderful virtuoso maestro Edson Lopes in Tatui. He's an amazing teacher and extremely generous with his work. He has a wonderful arrangement of Tico Tico for two guitars. You can see him play it in YT with I believe a student of his. I wouldn't be surprised if you were to discover that he also has an arrangement for just one guitar.

Good luck :bye:

Great to see brazilian music being played here. This is not an easy song to perform but you're in the right road to get it done! Keep on playing it and very soon you're going to master it. :bravo:

I had a wonderful time listening to your interpretation. Your sense of rythm and emotional expression is obviously super.

You are what I call 'interpretation led', which is great. You know what I mean: you have an interpretation in your head, or maybe its in your heart, and you are trying to get to it with the skills you have.

It's nice to hear efforts like this. As opposed to 'fear pushed,' where the player's objective is only negative: not to make mistakes and still play full speed with some kind of basic dynamic skills. I think you can tell the difference in about one millisecond. I believe that a lot of guitar playing today is fear pushed, and because of that both the players and the listeners lose out.

So. You know that if your scales were smoother your interpretation would come across to us better, but I can already tell where you want to take the music and I think its very nice. If you will put in the sweat to improve technique enough to reveal all the treasures you have inside, you will make the world happy. But maybe you won't have time, or maybe you won't be able to figure out all the little tricks your fingers and arms demand to get the job done. We'll see. Good luck to you!

Hi Isabelle, I enjoyed your playing immensely. I have always liked latin guitar, but I have listened mostly to the works of Antonio Lauro, who I think is Venezuelan. I have always associated Brazilian with Bossa Nova, but your music has introduced me to another aspect of Brazilian music. Many thanks.

Your efforts created a very nice performance for this very popular and hard piece. Of course progress is infinite. Nobody could reach the perfect level without working hard. Working is the key in music and you're in a good way.

Congrats. :bravo:
