Practice loop: medium bossa

Probably my only post this week— we're having a wild end of 2022 around here, with my family experiencing an ongoing medical emergency, and I'm having to travel to Eugene a lot.  

So here's a nice easy loop for practicing bossa nova, samba and baiao rhythms at a slower tempo, about 110 bpm. Sampled from All Around, from Bebel Gilberto's great self titled album from 2004. 

My labels for Brazilian music related stuff are kind of a mess— most of the transcriptions and practice materials can be found under Bossa Nova and Brazil

Anyway happy 2023, in a couple of days— I'll be back with some new stuff next week.

Thanks for the incredible postings in 2022. I visit daily. You have really improved my playing. The internet can be a source of good.

I wish you and your family a happy and healthy new year. I hope all has been worked through well.
