I had been studying guitar for 15+ years, both playing and recording professionally. While searching to add a little bit of Brazilian technique to my repertoire I found Renato Candro. His methods and lessons were wonderfully paced and efficient in their teachings. Within a handful of weeks I was able to learn some basic fingerings and beautiful songs, both of which have enriched my own natural style of playing in ways that I’m excited to keep exploring. The beautiful sounds and tones of Brazilian music that I’ve always admired no longer feel so mysterious.
