Unlike many Bach editions for guitar, these transcriptions are meant to be performed using a pick. Although a few of the pieces may be played on a standard acoustic guitar, most require an electric guitar or a guitar with a cutaway. All pieces are in the original keys and their ranges may require notes as high as the twenty-second fret. Written in notation and tablature, these six pieces make great sight reading exercises. The included CD will prove an asset in learning these often challenging pieces.

  • August 22, 2007 A good examination of Bach.

    I went through the book and found it to be a very valuable resource for anyone wanting a window into how baroque compositions are constructed. This book in the hands of someone willing to take the journey further will prove to be an excellent starting point. This would be a...

    comfortable as well as logical way for an electric guitarist to begin to understand the art and process of transcribing.

  • May 12, 2007 awfull

  • December 26, 2006 For Electric Guitarists...

    It was transcribed using a pick for the reason that electric guitarists can't readily find transcriptions that use the pick. This is obvious from the picture on the front!!!!! There are LOADS of books (Schirmer, Peters) that have Bach transcribed for classical guitar if you want that. Get it...

    if you're an electric guitarist, not if you're a classical guitarist.

  • February 25, 2006 I hate to gripe, but...

    I have to wonder why this book was transcribed for using a pick, as if you would ever have to or want to. It results in very bizarre and suboptimal choices in my opinion. The tablature at least saved me time in figuring out my own fingerpicked version of the...

    fantastic Preludio In E, otherwise unavailable. The CD recordings are mostly 'clean' making you wonder why use the electric guitar anyway, and the playing is partially flawed. HOWEVER, the Toccata and Fugue with distortion makes buying the thing worthwhile.
