Bass patterns

Post by Adrian P »

Hi all,
I have been trying to play "Besame Mucho". I have copied the notes down from this video on U Tube

The tune is in F Major , but I am struggling to find a pattern for the bass.
I seem to have got the waltz pattern off quite well but struggle with other patterns, like polka etc
Maybe I should play legato or alternate bass ?
If anyone can suggest a simple bass pattern I would be grateful.
Cheers Adrian (UK)

In the morning I stumbled upon this song... now I definitely want to lern it. The right hand is not so hard, but the left hand is not so easy and the rythm is weird...
I've just got the sheet musik by copying it note by note from the video. Do you have a complete sheet?
