Choro is one style of music from Brazil. Analyses of individual works for Classical Guitar and general discussions on analysis.

Thanks Owl for that fine answer. 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.

I am grasping for some way to understand what he is doing so I can remember the sequence better.

He knew how to compose and how to play a choro. 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 choeo. I think I’ll watch some of his other videos too. 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.

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. Classical Guitar Skip to content.

Pay attention to the “swing” of the cavaquinho and the importance of the bass lines that make an important counterpoint to the melody. Nostalgia is located in the past and is somewhat conformist while saudade is very present, anguishing, anxious and extends into the future.


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. 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.

Barrios title meaning? – Classical Guitar

I’m afraid I will have to watch it a number of times more before all that sinks in. 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.

This section is read-only. I think that the choro generates a lot of confusion because it may have two practical meanings in music: 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.

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.

I did get used to the scordatura 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, i. I had a look at chiro score – it looks to me as though mm. Please consider supporting us by disabling your ad blocker on our website.


My grasp of music theory is very primitive. I am trying to get to grips with music theory and just wanted to say thanks for the link barrjos the youtube lesson provided in this thread. I’m beginning to learn Choro de Saudade and am wondering if anyone knows the meaning of the title? 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.

Also, is anyone familiar with the Richard Stover transcription and what are your thoughts about it. So you can easily find some of his CDs on sites like A m a z o n.

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.

Any help is appreciated. 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. It is also important to notice that the improvisation style is more related to baroque practices than a romantic style or modern jazz.

I hear 7 chords, diminished, suspended maybe The big problem is that the correct rhythm cannot be translated into a score with accuracy. That is why I wanted to understand the choice of chords in this section. Having a road map that they were moving in the circle means I could start to name them and then start to associate the shape with a particular seven chord.

So be careful when you play a choro not to “over-romanticyze” it. But make sure its Saudade when u play it.
