Gensis of the song

Jeris opines, “I’ve waited all my life to remix a song called Pirate Love … lol.” We are suckers for a well crafted pirate love song as well, especially in Portuguese. Galveston Island was a pirate haven for a time including a brief period (circa 1817-1818) under the control of Jean Lafitte.

After listening to Jeris’ Amor Pirata, it was obvious that we should remix Gabriel Versiani’s fabulous Brazilian Pirate Love song of which we do not understand a word. Fortunately, the feeling emoted is strong enough to enjoy without understanding Portuguese.

Located some Gabriel Versiani performances on YouTube. Filho de Ogum is intriguing because Gabriel is playing an acoustic guitar through a wah-wah. ElRon heard that and the die was cast for the Pirate Love guitar jam.

The pell sounded okay in Am with bass, piano and rhythm guitar playing an 8 bar 1|1|4|4|7|7|3|2-5 progression. Digging the Brazilian Xote sidestick style drums lately, selected three Xote variations for this song.

Added snaps, trombones, tenor sax, baritone sax and soundfont brass in places to break up the repetitiveness of the bass, rhythm guitar and piano Am chord progression.
