Till There Was You from “The Music Man” 1957
I have created this arrangement especially for Janet. AND I did it in the style that the Beatles played it – “a little Latin”.

Now don’t get scared off because of the basses – Fm to F#dim – look at the bass – I am using what I call the Shotgun bass. See the links below – I have taught you how to spot when to use this and a few exercises. (You will always see a bass – then the sharp of that bass and the chord is usually marked dim – and it resolves to a 7th chord)
- Advanced Bass Work Level 3 – Shotgun is explained on pg 3
- Let Me Call You Sweetheart Level 2 – another example of Shotgun (Measure 4 and 13)
About the Song:
“Till There Was You” is a song written by Meredith Willson for his 1957 musical play The Music Man, and which also appeared in the 1962 movie version.
It became a hit for Anita Bryant in 1959 and was later covered by The Beatles in 1963. The Beatles had performed “Till There Was You” as part of their failed audition for Decca Records in London on January 1, 1962, and it was the second of five the group sang during their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show on February 9, 1964.
