Tico Tico is a Brazilian choro song written by Zequinha de Abreu in 1917. Its original title was "Tico-Tico no farelo" ("sparrow in the bran"), but since Brazilian guitarist Américo Jacomino "Canhoto" (1889–1928) had a work with the same title, Abreu's work was given its present name in 1931.

Hi Don,

This choice certainly fits the bill. A very difficult piece to play, but you have handled it superbly.

Probably the best known performance of this tune was by Ethel Smith on Hammond Organ, from the 1944 film 'Bathing Beauty'.

Hi Don. A very complicated piece to play. I don’t think I could do it. Would get my fingers in a knot. A nice style and choice of sounds. Enjoyed my listen. John

Hi
Hugh, Fred, John and Brian.
Thanks for your kind comments.
Might have been better if I had all those girls as in Hugh's video.
Regards Don
