I'd like to learn some standard samba chords for guitar. I understand the usual involves jazzy chords like 9/11/13 and few others. Now, I can construct these chords myself, but problem number one: it's tedious and problem number two: most of the variations don't sound "sambaish enough" (often they are either too low or high or miss some important note) and I am quite sure there is a bunch of basic griffs one should be familiar with.
So, while samba chord theory is welcome, I'd appreciate if you could provide concrete variations. Better still, I'd like to see some database of these chords (I am sure there must be some but alas I was unable to find them; at least disregarding some weird pages).
