Item Number: S0.5303

Usually the mood of Spanish, Hispanic, Latino, or Mexican music is thought of as bright and joyously rhythmic. Here is a quieter, more introspective ballad that uses a clave' beat accompaniment under the melody, both played by the right hand in the treble. The bassline uses 10ths and octaves to keep a steady pulse, with typical salsa syncopation, under the pensive modern chords and spare melody. Somber + sombrero=Somberero. The right hand can sustain the melody with the back fingers, and allow the chords to punctuate underneath, with a minimum of pedal sustain. For a fuller effect, use more pedal. Approx duration 3 mins. Piece repeats, with short coda.
