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?

Sorry to take so long to reply Thomas, I've been having problems logging in. Had to use an old log in password to reply to you.
I saw that Dale Mathis had played this on you tube and offered a free sheet so I e-mailed him.
The reply is here and has other tunes as well, let me know if it doesn't work for you. Cheers

Ok... this helps a lot - Thank you. But I've still massive problems with the left hand. How far are you with the piece of music - whats your progress?
