Choro is a Brazilian music style, very popular in the s and s, but still popular nowadays. Thanks for this interesting contribution about a tune, that sounds almostclassical. For me all guitar pieces are hard to play, so this one doesn't belong to the most difficult pieces to me. Keep swinging Hans. An interesting version is the one by Chet Atkins on his "Solo Flights"-album.

I'm beginning to learn Choro de Saudade and am wondering if anyone knows the meaning of the title? Also, is anyone familiar with the Richard Stover transcription and what are your thoughts about it.
I just ordered it today and am looking forward to getting it. 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. Many thanks AB. Re: Barrios title meaning? Beeeauutiful piece.
But make sure its Saudade when u play it. A choro is a particular style of music 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.
Saudade is like nostalgia but with the hope that what is being longed for might return, even if that return is unlikely or so distant in the future to be almost of no consequence to the present.
One might make a strong analogy with nostalgia as a feeling one has for a loved one who has died and saudade as a feeling one has for a loved one who has disappeared or is simply currently absent. 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 quite a different meaning. Apparently Barrios wrote this piece upon hearing of the death of a friend, so although the piece is sad it also has the joy of particular memories I play this piece myself and it's very beautiful I know you will do it justice I think it is actually Choro da Saudade Owl.
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've also had the same for a very long time and somehow it mus thave gotten filed in a very obscure file in my noodle.
Thanks Owl for that fine answer. The choro I already knew but the saudade I have been hearing since way back in jazz music, brazilian and non-brazilian, and did not know. Thanks again, Albert. The big problem is that the correct rhythm cannot be translated into a score with accuracy.
It is something like a mazurka. On the mazurka the second beat has a small accent and maybe the third beat is a little bit delayed. Mazurkas have their own variations too and they have some sort of characteristic swing. Choro is one style of music from Brazil. Paraguay is very close to Brazil and Barrios lived in Brazil for a long time. He knew how to compose and how to play a choro. He won the two most important guitar competitions of that time in the same year : the Radio de France in Paris, and GFA in Totornto.
So you can easily find some of his CDs on sites like A m a z o n. 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. Pay attention to the way the syncopation has a subtle accent, sometime by a small delay of the exact tempo, sometime by a small stacatto. Bass line is also very important. It is hard to explain. If I have time I will try to explain it better and give some examples.
Cheers, Luis. The sound result explains better than thousands of words On the sound samples of the page, listen carfully to the accompaniment made by 7-string guitar bass-lines , cavaquinho a kind of soprano-guitar, performing the syncopation together with some percussion.
Pay attention to the "swing" of the cavaquinho and the importance of the bass lines that make an important counterpoint to the melody.
It is also important to notice that the improvisation style is more related to baroque practices than a romantic style or modern jazz. So be careful when you play a choro not to "over-romanticyze" it. It is better if you play it in some sort of "baroque style". Board index All times are UTC.
