Capital is a protegé of the legendary Brazilian composer/guitarist Guinga – Guinga even wrote a song for him called ‘Capital’. He came in last week and played a bunch of guitars, so I’ll be posting videos for the next few weeks. Here he is playing Guinga’s ‘Picotado’ on a Teodoro Perez ‘Especial Maple’ and ‘Capital’, the song written for him by Guinga, on a Thomas Norwood ‘1910 Manuel Ramirez’ model. You can find out more about Capital’s schedule and ‘Like’ him over on his facebook page. He’s also teaching at this Summer’s ‘California Brazil Camp‘, which is an amazing place to immerse yourself in Brazilian music and which has an amazing faculty.

    The piece/song played on Thomas Norwood’s guitar is that one Guinga wrote for him, with lyrics by Simone Guimarães, and recorded on “Casa de Villa” album. I think it’s not “Dichavado”, but “Capital”. Other amazing guitar player that is very close to Guinga is Marcus Tardelli.
