i'm transcribing one of Gonzalo's composition : A una carioca.

I have some trouble with chord progression. Anyone got the chord progression for this tune?

I know the F#m - Bm - E7 - A then 2-5-1 but the other part is tricky for me.

    I personally don't, but I've chatted with Gonzalo - he let's his ears figure out chord progressions & voicings. So I wouldn't focus too much on "this progression doesn't make sense" - only if it sounds right.

    Hi Christophe,

    I am not trying to make sense of it honestly, i am trying to find the progression he plays. I found a bit more since my post....but still have work ahead to get the whole thing! For some reason this one is though for me to find, usually, i get chord progression pretty fast...not this time! It is for sure a good exercise though.

    Yeah, the toughest ones to figure out are usually the coolest ones.

    When I get really stumped, I use one of those slowdowner apps and make a little loop that will repeat each chord over and over for me until DUH! I finally get it right!
