Book Description

21 Dec 2011 Book & CD
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 compositions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful 26 Mar 2014
By Zack - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really love these arrangements. The harmony is full and rich, and right at my playing level. It's always nice to have some Bach in your repertoire when you explain to other you're a "classical" guitarist. Though, even though the title says easy, I wouldn't recommend it for beginners. I have been playing for 5 years, and 1 year classical and it takes me about an hour to become acquainted with a song, and a couple to perfect it. I plan on learning one a day, it's like push-ups for guitar!

The only cons I found were that there was tablature (if you're playing at this level, in my opinion you shouldn't need it), and each song does not include a BWV number
