I was playing Machinarium on my iPad a while ago and I noticed this song when the robot was in the bar. It has a lead guitar, accompanied by percussion and bass, and it has a lovely bossa nova feel to it. After a few fruitless Google search around, I decided to transcribe the piece. Four months in, and it’s fruitful! Here’s a preview of the transcription. I’m a classical guitar player. Bossa Nova rhythm and harmonies aren’t exactly my thing so there will be a few places that sounds ‘off’, but if you just learn the basic chords and wing it, you can certainly get the result you want. Personally, I never stick to the score anyway.
