comment Are there any machine-readable databases of chord progressions available?
In most programming environments, this is as simple as calling up a "URL Decode" function. This "%20" way of encoding characters for transport in URLs is actually a standard: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Percent-encoding (this is more of a Stack Overflow question, really lol)

comment I'm looking to build a basic repertoire of Brazilian music. Which songs would you recommend I start with?
One may also keep an eye on the rankings of letras.terra.com.br and/or cifraclub.com.br for songs currently popular monthly/weekly-wise.

These are good options too. The previous suggestions were more in the erudite realm. If you ventrue into popular music, then Roberto and Ivete are very significant. It should be kept in mind, though, that they represent only a fraction of the MPB (Música Popular Brasileira - Brazilian Popular Music) genre. Also, they're hardly "currently trending".

Should this be made a community wiki?

Also, if I may, the proper spellings would be "Água de Beber" and "Manhã de Carnaval". And the Portuguese names for "Girl From Ipanema" and "One Note Samba" are "Garota de Ipanema" and "Samba de uma Nota Só", if that helps :).

It was the first thing I tried... although a good reference overall, this Wikipedia article unfortunately doesn't cover this particular "corner case".

I would if I could, but since I can't, I'm expressing my opinion in the closest place I can :)

@neilfein: not really, I wasn't. What I meant is that even experts should avoid the 'because I said so' explanation when giving advice to potential laymen, as is the case of a FAQ. His statement is very counter-intuitive, and this alone should be a reason for him to phrase that as "you should detune your instrument if you won't play in a long time, because of X". IMHO, saying something is obvious when most of your audience wouldn't think it is is just plain elitism.
