Here another Rosa Passos tune. Originally composed by Gilberto Gil in 1974, the track is “Ladeira da Preguiça” from the album Azul (2002) with Celso de Almeida on drums,  be sure to listen… it’s worth.

The first section has a Partido Alto groove and a samba feel on the rest of the song with a particular feel on the refrain/bridge. The most difficult thing is to play the right hand, on the hi-hat and on the cymbal, at his tempo (approximately 96 bpm), slow-down can help to put all together.



Here’s the basic Partido Alto pattern  played in the first section.
