Here are a couple of new lessons on Brazilian Grooves & Vamps.
In these lessons we explore the 251 and 2516 progressions for both major and minor keys.
They are both short lessons starting with very simple voicings containing just roots, 3rds, and 7ths of the chords. Jovino gradually layers in more interesting note choices using chord extensions and alterations.
Here are the PDF downloads containing the lesson graphics and notation:
And here are some related lessons and courses:
