Recommended Posts

i'm from brazil, and you? i like several musical styles, i don't have preference, i really listen to everything.

lately i´ve been listening a lot to Yoñlu, he doesn't my ears. :rolleyes:

Do you like a music a lot like me? i have a dream to compose and record like Yoñlu, he is a great inspiration for me, and you?

Probably nobody will read this topic, but, what does it cost to try? :hat:

Do you like Elis Regina? She’s from Brazil, this is my favourite song of hers, with Tom Jobim:

 


Possibly the most perfect interpretation  of the most perfect song.

omg, anybody notice me! lmao.

this song is a classic here in brazil, i think all young people should know it, it's really great! the Brazilian music of that time is rich in talent, totally unlike today. have you ever experienced legião urbana or tim maia? should hear.

If we're talking Brazilian music then I can't get enough of Antonio Carlos Jobim. Superb musician and arranger, who along with Joao Gilberto helped bring the Bossa Nova to America (and then the world).

 

This recording he did with Sinatra is one of my absolute favourite albums.

Thanks for posting this, by the way. I'd not heard Sinatra & Jobim before. And from the related youtube suggestions, I listened to Getz/Gilberto (also featuring Jobim) and Getz/Byrd - Jazz Samba, both of which I have listened to a few times before, but today both were purchased for a mere £1.99 each (digital)!

Speaking of amazing singers and Brazil, this incredible tune by Gal Costa cropped up on Brazilian near future SF flick Bacarau recently. It’s mind blowingly good and ultra futuristic, a real curio from 1969:

wow, so many people! i can't believe that!

i'm very happy, thank all.

recently i've been listening to a lot of old american songs. like grandaddy, mogwai, radiohead, tom waits and The Flamings Lips, I admit that my musical taste is very varied. I am delighted with so many people answering my post, really. As I said earlier, I'm from Brazil, and our schedules don't match much and I forget to check here, but after so many answers, I will appear a lot more! oh, and i'm about to get a guitar, what do you think about me posting my covers just for you? I have some scribbles of lyrics, but all without an arranged rhythm, I am open to constructive opinions. You hear very good music, congratulations !!! and until another day again.:bye:

I mostly listen to dance music, so most of my favourite voices are powerful disco and house diva's! Jocelyn Brown was the first name that popped in my head. Amazing and powerful voice!

 

 

about the two songs; wow, they're very good! it makes me feel alive, it makes me want to go dancing until dawn lmao.

i just got a guitar from my dad, but i feel like i won't be able to play, i don't know what to do.:(


We have a very long running guitar thread in Off Topic, might be worth posting in there? People here are very helpful.  :)
 


 

EDIT: This is also posted recently in Ask the Forum, looks like it could be useful too:

And in the learning thread justinguitar.com is recommended, and he is indeed really good. Lessons are almost all free too (some of the more in depth stuff, like music theory, is paid for). 

thank you for the recommendation! a friend of mine decided to help me on this short walk, he has been playing the guitar for five years, I think it will be useful.

I've been listening to a really good song by yoñlu, it's called '' Estrela, estrela ''. I will leave the link and the translation below.

 

 

 

star, star
how to be like this
so lonely, so lonely
and never suffer

shine, shine
almost unintentionally
leave, leave
be what you are

on the naked body
constellation
you are in one hand
and you come and go, like a lamp
in the cold wind
from somewhere

 good to know
that you are part of me
just like you are part of the mornings
better, better
is to be able to enjoy peace, the peace you bring here

I sing, I sing because I can see you in the sky, in the sky like a balloon
I sing and I know that you also see me here, with this song.

 

 beautiful, right? i know.
