Bach Chorales for Classical Guitar

70 Bach Chorales for Classical Guitar

In the early 1700s, Bach's chorales enchanted listeners with their inventive harmonies, chromaticism, contrapuntal motion, and changes of tonal center. Since that time, music students the world over have studied the chorales as a paragon of "common practice" harmony and voice leading. And by virtue of their sublime beauty, musicians continue to perform the chorales to this day. The four-part texture of the chorales can make their performance on guitar ¯ with its fingering limitations ¯ somewhat problematic. But by sometimes thinning the texture to three or two parts, and sometimes inverting the lower parts (allowing the alto or tenor to temporarily serve as the bass), we've created easy-to-play classical guitar solos that capture all the interest and beauty of Bach's original compostitions.

Essential Bach Arranged for the Guitar

Essential Bach Arranged for the Guitar

Essential Bach Arranged for Guitar provides guitarists with a new approach to many of Bach's masterpieces. The fingerings in the arrangements make the guitar sound rich and full, as if the pieces were written for the instrument. Attention is given to the musical line by using cross-string fingerings in a consistent manner. This approach allows the harmonies to become more evident as well. By using a more musical approach for the fingerings, playing Bach on the guitar no longer feels cumbersome. Suggested dynamics and articulations are also included. Fingerings and slurs are notated close to the notes for easy reading.
