Who wrote Petite Bossa?

Post by Den » Fri Jun 05, 2015 4:43 pm

I'm working on Petite Bossa (easily found on Youtube or some tablature sites). It looks like it was written by the Great Mr. Anonymous. Does anyone know the background behind this piece (year, composer, etc.)?

The composer appears to be "Philippe Renaud", according to the YT videos.....

i searched a little bit and i found a page that appears to have been created by phillippe renaud. it has tab for various guitar pieces (many of which are under copyright). the petite bossa piece is there, listed as anonymous. the actual tab appears to list him as the person who created the tab.

there is a contact email, so perhaps you could ask phillip.

den, let me know if you need the site, i suspect you already know it.

Thank you David and mc1. I saw the name, Philippe Renaud, but I thought he was only the arranger or the guy who created the tablature for this piece. This seems to be a fairly recent composition, so I assume Philippe must be the composer then. Thank you again.

It's a joke. Yepes claimed to have composed "Romance," a claim that has been thoroughly debunked, so I thought I might as well on his behalf credit him with composing any anonymous piece.

Hey, he did compose "Greensleeves!" I read that on the internet somewhere.

No that's a lie. My grandfather actually composed Greensleeves, Early One Morning and Romance (he actually called it initially "English Ballad" but some dude stole it from him and renamed it "Spanish Ballad").
