Bossa/Samba scales

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I just started to play bossa nova guitar, and I'm wondering if there are any special bossa/samba scales I can learn that have a 'brazilian sound'. If so, I'd be very happy if someone here could post some of them or direct me to a link where I could find some.

greetings,

Nate

A standard "jazz" study of the melodic minor scale and it's "modes" is a good start point to any advanced study of the harmony involved (suposing major and harmonic minor are well known). Bossa nova started as a kind of slow samba rithm for jazz anyway.

After that, there's some cliches and patterns as Eugene has mentioned, and long listening time of the greats will help to polish a bit more.
