It's been awhile since I have played guitar but I'm trying to get back into it. I really like bossa nova music and want to learn how to play it. I have some beginner sheet music that I am learning from (see image below) but I have a couple questions about it:
In the image below, I've added numbers (1&2&a, etc.) that represent my interpretation of the count. Is my counting correct?
I placed a circle around what I think is a shortcut way of writing a chord. Am I correct?
Thanks a lot for your help :)
