Tico Tico no Fuba is a classic Brazillian tune – most often heard on guitar. It was written by Zequinha de Abreu in 1917.
Here, it’s played by the “Duo Siqueira Lima” – Fernando, from Brazil, and Cecelia, from Uruguay – at the Brazilian Music Institute in Florida. What makes it special is that their hand-work and trading off of picking on their own notes and then each other’s notes on the guitar is nothing short of stunning.
If you haven’t seen this, please give it a listen:
