Calypso's wild pulses, danceable rhythms, and playful lyrics will spice up anyone's songs and arrangements. Syncopation is the key and Bob shows you how to use fingerpicking and strumming patterns, moving bass lines, percussive strokes, arpeggios, octave runs, and his own "Gypsy in a can" riff to suit these songs. You'll learn a variety of keys and rhythms including calypso, tango, samba, waltz, mazurka and Latin jazz. Songs include "Uncle Joe," "Down the Road," "Death Calypso," "Poor But Ambitious," "Cinemascope Calypso," "The Five-Year Plan" and "It Happened in Monterrey." Intermediate. Chords and lyrics included as either booklet or PDF file on the disc. 80 min.
