In this lesson we will learn a popular jazz standard by a famous bossa nova musician and composer - Desafinado by Antonio Carlos Jobim. We will learn how to create a bossa nova bassline in the left hand, a simple harmonization technique for the melody, and some advanced reharmonization approaches in select spots. We'll also revisit some drop-2 voicings and block chord techniques.
