When I play this song I use G2/B and a C2 chord. 
Also, D/F# sounds good.
Play Em7 and Am7 for the chorus. 
Dsus before the G. 
I also have the chords (Key of E )if interested.

Besame Mucho: Latin Piano Lesson

CD by Nacho Méndez. Boosa nova and rancheras.Image via Wikipedia
I love this song, Besame Mucho. I especially like Diana Krall's version. There's just something about a bossa nova beat.
Willie Myette does a great job teaching diminished approaches. For more information visit http://www.pianowithwillie.com

The Essential Chords

 The Essential Chords


Minor Chords


To make any minor chord just lower the middle note of the corresponding major chord one half-step. (This assumes that the major chord is constructed so that the root is the lowest note of the chord.)


* The Twelve Major Chords


C = CEG
Db = DbFAb
D = DF#A
Eb = EbGBb
E = EG#B
F = FAC
Gb = GbBbDb
G = GBD
Ab = Ab C Eb
A = AC#E
Bb = BbDF
B = BD#F#


* The Twelve Minor Chords


Cm = CEbG
Dbm = DbEAb
Dm = DFA
Ebm = EbGbBb
Em = EGB
Fm = FAbC
Gbm = GbADb
Gm = GBbD
Abm = AbBEb
Am = ACE
Bbm = BbDbF
Bm = BDF#


* Seventh Chords


To make any seventh chord take the corresponding major chord and add a fourth note to it. The note that you add is one whole-step (two half-steps) below the root. The seventh chord will sound better if you place this extra note at the top of the chord, leaving the root at the bottom.


This is a C seventh (C7) chord ... C E G Bb


* The Twelve Seventh Chords


C7 = CEGBb


Db7 = DbFAbB


D7 = DF#AC


Eb7 = EbGGBbDb


E7 = EG#BD


F7 = FACEb


Gb7 = GbBbDbE


G7 = GBDF


Ab7 = AbCEbGb


A7 = AC#EG


Bb7 = BbDFAb


B7 = B#D#F#A

Blues Chord Progression


You may know how to build:


* minor thirds
* major thirds
* perfect fifths
* major chords
* minor thirds
* seventh chords


Do you know these chords?
C7, F7, G7?

Here's another way to figure out seventh chords:

1. Start from the root note of the chord you want to play. That is ( F ) or ( G )...
2. Add a major third ( 4 half steps )
3. Then add a minor third (which is the same as a perfect fifth from the root).
4. Then add another minor third.


Seventh chord = major third + minor third + minor third ... or


Major third (combined with perfect fifth + minor third


* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 


C7 = C + E + G + Bb


F7 = F + A + C + Eb


G7 = G = B + D + F


* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *


Blues Chord Progression


A "chord progression" is a series of chords played one after the other.


A "blues chord progression" is usually 12 bars long.


In this progression, a bar equals 4 beats. Clapping your hands 4 times (in a rhythmical beat) equals 1 bar. thus, 12 bars equals 48 beats.


Each bar begins at 1 again. That is, "1-2-3-4" - - - "1-2-3-4" as opposed to "1-2-3-4 - - - 5-6-7-8"


How To Read The Blues Chart


1. The chord is listed first; the beat numbers are listed below the chord names.
2. Play the chord for the given amount of beats listed (the bar # is also listed).


For example,


C7
(1-2-3-4)
Bar 1


This means that you will play a C7 chord while counting to 4
