Here’s my NEW updated version of “Mas Que Nada” fingerstyle guitar composed by Jorge Ben.
I recorded this song as one of my first Youtube videos way back in 2008 (13 years ago!)
I was just starting out back then with fingerstyle guitar, and so much has changed in my playing and recording approach. I figured an update was long overdue! For several years, this song has been my concert opener and I’ve used the song to investigate my groove, tone, and technique. I still warm up with it almost every day.
Fingerstyle Guitar – Tips for Tuning!
- Tuning is Standard tuning E A D G B E
The first version I heard was the Dizzy Gillespie version with James Moody on sax, and my former teacher Mike Longo on piano. It’s super groovy, check it out!
The Sergio Mendes / Brasil 66 version is more well-known and I think it is in some car ads on tv!
I hope you enjoy this updated guitar version.
