“For several years I've been trying to learn Brazilian guitar on my own, with very mixed results. I've struggled with other books and videos, which I've found overly-complicated or, in the case of chords and chord progressions, frankly misleading.In slow, deliberate fashion, Brazilian jazz master Romero Lubambo demonstrates a series of ascending and descending chord sequences that, I guarantee, will have newbies slapping their heads and muttering "so that's how it's done."”


“Mr Lubambo is very likeable as instructor, and the lessons progress at a challenging, but not impossible rate from basic to fairly advanced. If you are a guitarist who has gotten in a bit of a rut with the ordinary type chords and progressions this is a great way to expand your horizons . Learning the context for many of the chords is another benefit. A great way to get the basics of a beautiful and melodic musical style. ”
