São Bento Grande Variation
In tonight’s class we practiced this variation, amongst other things. Mestre Poncianinho was playing the berimbau extra amazingly tonight, it was an audio-visual treat!!! Shame I didn’t record the class!!!
tsh#tsh# dim dom dom x2 (São Bento Grande basic)
tsh#tsh# dim dom dom domtss# dim dom dom
First we practiced the domtss# move, hit the dom note, then move berimbau towards the belly and touch the arame (wire) with the pedra (stone) – from there move away into dim.
