A ground bass (also basso ostinato: obstinate bass) is a bass part or bassline that repeats continually, as an ostinato, while the melody and possibly harmony over it change.

Ostinato II Composer and musicologist, Corneliu Dan Georgescu is of the opinion that `contemporary music in Romania does not follow a single, unified course’.

 Alan W. Pollack's Notes on "Day Tripper"   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The ostinato appears in only the first eight measures of the verse, but the arpeggio quality of the ostinato continues in the bassline even when the ostinato itself isn't present; another example of homogeneity without foolish consistency.
