What a nice yet lesser known Jobim tune this is and never a better arrangement
for solo guitar exists than the one Emily offers us here.
I would think if Jobim ever heard her version he would have exclaimed,
“Ah, now that’s how it should be played, magnifico!”
(LeadSheet version available on Guest Transcriptions page)
And for the record, officially this song is titled: The Red Blouse.
You can find the original song in iTunes Music Store.

This is the song Emily learned so she could go down to Manny’s Guitar store and impress listeners by playing both elements of a song, the rhythm and lead. It’s a great version for students but begs to be longer. A wonderful opportunity to explore your own ideas.

This song really moves. A nice piece to find a partner and trade off working on rhythm and lead.
