Notes on guitar chords

It's important to understand that there is no single way to play a certain song. Particularly for bossa nova, many versions were recorded in the long history of this music. The recommended way to learn to play from these transcriptions is to get the recording we transcribed and study the chords with the help of our transcriptions. On most song pages there is a cover image of a CD containing version we transcribed that links to Amazon where you can listen or buy the CD. Finally, please buy the CDs and support the authors.
