If we are going to stay with the circle of fifths for the length of the arc but still get back where we started, one of the vhoro will have to be different — otherwise the chain will overshoot by a semitone and will then continue on around the brrios.

I play the Jobim tune “Chega de Saudade”, also known as “No More Blues”, and I’ve been told that the portugese and english lyrics are really very different, and that ‘saudade’ is a word that doesn’t translate to english in a simple word such as ‘blues”.

I will stretch my fingers with the Choro da Saudade and my mind with these youtube lessons. It is something like a mazurka. My grasp of music theory is very primitive. I’ll take a look at that lesson link when I get to a place with a better internet connection tomorrow. I’m afraid I will have to watch it a number of times more before all that sinks in. Board index All times are UTC. He won the two most important guitar competitions of that time in the same year On the sound samples of the page, listen carfully to the accompaniment made by 7-string guitar bass-linescavaquinho a kind of soprano-guitar, performing the syncopation together with some percussion.

Classical Guitar Skip to content. Mazurkas have their own variations too and they have some sort of characteristic swing. On the mazurka the second beat has a small accent and maybe the third beat is a little bit delayed. If you listen to Villa-Lobos own recording of this piece you will notice he has a proper swing because Villa-Lobos knew how to play choros. Saudade is different than nostalgia the English word, that is.

I hear 7 chords, diminished, suspended maybe Also, is anyone familiar with the Richard Stover transcription and what are your thoughts about it. Pay attention to the “swing” of the cavaquinho and the importance of the bass lines that make an important counterpoint to the melody. If there is no answer to that question, we may be in freefall — a chain of dominant sevenths might create that effect, but then again we may only be going round the same arc of the circle of fifths that defines the scale if you look at any 7-note arc, you will find that the notes it includes always make a natural scale, chkro.

Personally I would look at this as an alteration of the first chord rather than a true change of harmony – I don’t think the harmony really changes until the next measure.

Not just naming them, but trying to understand what they are doing in the piece.

If you ask yourself what note you would expect the piece to end on, if it were to end at the first possible opportunity, that note is what you perceive as the tonal centre at that point it may be better to call it the root of the chord that defines the tonal centre.

Thanks for that explanation, Owl. Bass line saudare also very important.

I’m trying to identify them so I can at least learn something more than “my fingers go in these places on these frets in this shape” as I commit this piece to memory.

That abrrios why I wanted to understand the choice of chords in this section. I am using the Stover edition and I am using the ossia he gives for measure The earlier measures often feature a non-chordal tone that is a semitone off the chord tone it replaces. Topics archived from Public Space and its ea after a long period of inactivity, or redundant for some other reason.


In some cases where the bassline is descending a whole step from one measure to the next, Barrios takes it down a half step in the middle of the bar to produce a chromatic line.

In the end the reason for this is the same as the reason for the semitones in the scale and many of the issues around temperament — the fifth does not fit neatly into the octave.

Analysis of Choro da Saudade -Barrios – Classical Guitar

Nostalgia is located in the past and is somewhat conformist while saudade is very present, anguishing, anxious and extends into the future. In Portuguese, the same word nostalgia has daa a different meaning. The unreachable chord in measure 28 crossbarremy teacher revoiced and I’m playing it at VI with the Eb on sauddade 5, but that wouldn’t really change its ID In nostalgia, one has a mixed happy and sad feeling, a memory of happiness but a sadness for its impossible return and sole existence in the past.

The sound result explains better than thousands of words It is hard to explain. It is better if you play it in some sort of “baroque style”.

Barrios title meaning? – Classical Guitar

Any help is appreciated. I’m beginning to learn Choro de Saudade and am wondering if anyone knows the meaning of the title?

Thanks Owl for that fine answer. I think I’ll watch some of his other videos too. Paraguay is very close to Brazil and Barrios lived in Brazil for a long time.

When the sun shines, bask. I’ve begun learning it from a free internet version and have found that these free versions are often poor you get what you pay for in that case. Analyses of individual works for Classical Guitar and general discussions on analysis.
