Lute Suite 1 BWV 996 by J.S. Bach - 11 Pages - $4.95

My eBook edition of this great work by J.S. Bach originally thought to be for solo lute although research seems to indicate that it was written for a keyboard instrument called the Lautenwerk which sounds very much like a lute. I tried to maintain as much of the original notation as possible using the Neue Bach-Ausgabe as my source. There were a few instances of chords that were not playable on guitar and some of the voices cannot be sustained as the notation indicates. Otherwise I was surprised to find that nearly everything is playable as written; challenging but playable. Preview my edition by viewing the examples below. This suite is also available within Fundamentals of Guitar Technique.
