Transcription: Oscar Castro-Neves on “Once I Loved”

Here is a transcription of Brazilian guitar legend Oscar Castro-Neves’ rhythm guitar from a live performance of “Once I Loved”.  This is an excellent study of up-tempo samba rhythms and how they are applied to guitar.  Note that the transcription is only of the 1st chorus starting when the saxophone begins playing the melody.

Here is a link to the video:

Instructional Video: Bon Iver’s “Perth”

Check out my new video lesson (in two parts) for the opening track of Bon Iver’s most recent album. It’s a fun opportunity to explore an open tuning. I’ve covered all guitar parts in the song and even provided chord accompaniment ideas if you want to sing over your own solo arrangement of the song.
