Our library is AN EDUCATIONAL TOUR for the history of both styles just with a guitar.
– Essential the Complete Real Book for Jazz Songs and many Bossa Songs.
– Some Bossa Songs need specific books.
At the same time you practices scales & scales and standard & standard progressions you should learn the chords and tunes of the best songs ever.
Improvising is cool but knowing well the harmony is the basis of both musics, in addition to the rythm, of course!!
Is not possible to perform jazz or bossa music without knowing its history.
