||A very cool and stylised arrangement of the famous bossa tune. |
I haven't added the dynamics because they are just way too hard to reproduce in power tab. If you hear Dyens' recording of this piece you will see what I mean.
This song is packed full of semitones. Dyens plays most of those semitones right down near the bridge so as to get that twangy metal sound. If you like this effect you should also check out the south american guitarist Jorge Morel, he loves the quirky semitones too, in particular see "Bossa in Re".
I play all those bass notes in the intro with the thumb and palm mute, using sweep picking for those fast ones at the end of each bar. I'm not sure how Dyens plays it..
All the staccato chords are made by lifting the left hand slightly.
About the tempo: I checked the midi against Dyen's recording and he actually plays ~117 bpm (!) on the Nuages album. However, the score calls for 100. I have chosen 104 simply to be as close to 100 as possible before the trills go all spastic.
Since PTEditor doesn't have a third melody line, I had to tie in the bassline with the chords. Sorry about that, score readers, but if you're familiar with bossa it's a fairly typical rhythm throughout and the bassline is almost always plodding quarter notes.
