Guitar plays a very prominent roll in bossa nova and is most often used as accompaniment. The bossa nova patterns played on guitar are very typical and often combine chords with a bass line. Latin guitar is usually played on a nylon-string classical guitar and picked with the fingers.
The chords and the bass line of the guitar have a specific rhythm that is derived from a drum part played in samba music (the tamborim).
