Now we're gonna do a little faster baião,
and this one, we have the minor sound, and
then it goes to the dominant
7 with the plus 11,
which is very typical of this sound.
I wrote this to be kind of
a typical sounding baião and
just watch out for that figure.
[SOUND] That's a very
typical kind of figure one.
[SOUND] If you listen to like
Ildo Lobo and Chico Buarque and
a lot of these great records where
they have incredible playing.
There's a record you should listen to for
both, I think it has
some of this rhythm on there, and
it also has some great bossa novas and
samba kinda things, and
it's called Elis and Tom.
It was Elis Regina, who was one of
the greatest singers of Brazil ever,
who died fairly young, and Antonio Carlos
Jobim, they used to call him Tom Jobim.
So Elis and Tom.
Great record,
great bass player named Luizão Maia,
M-A-I-A something like that.
Great playing.
So here we go with the faster baião.
