Tico-Tico is the most famous piece written by Brazilian musician and composer Zequinha de Abreu.
This arrangement for four guitars by Steve Marsh includes a variety of strumming patterns and guitar percussion, and the interaction between parts and use of melody in octaves make this 2 minute long piece very enjoyable to perform. We think it suits guitar ensemble so well it could almost have been conceived as one!
Tico-Tico can be played as a quartet with one player per part or expanded into a larger ensemble.
