To play the opening left hand bass line, keep your pointer finger on G and use your thumb whenever you need to play Bb.

Reminder: You do not switch to an E natural in measure 14 for the left hand. The flat is carried across from the previous note Eb.

This song isn’t too difficult and you can make it more interesting through dynamics. Whenever you play the section that first appears at measures 9-16, make this section softer. This will make sections like measures 17-24 seem louder. The loudest spot in the whole song is measures 65-72, so give it everything you’ve got. Then, gradually fade out in measures 72-80.

If you want you could use the sustain pedal for the section that starts at measure 33. There are no other sections that really need the sustain pedal.
