Transcription of all six of J.S. Bach's cello suites BWV 1007-1012 for ukulele (gCEA tuning) from the urtext. All pitches are maintained from the original but there are some octave transposition, changes to the contour of the line (such as with the shape of arpeggios) or revoicing chords to fit the ukulele's smaller range. The transcriptions avoid a lot of campanella playing to maintain a clearer sense of line, especially in the runs. Open strings are mostly used to facilitate position changes, and as pedals. Some of the chords use higher pitches on the fourth string to complete the harmony where necessary. Where this happens, the melodic line is normally on the first or second string to give it extra weight or emphasis if the chord is rolled. Suite No.4 has been transposed from E flat major to G major and No.6 from D major to G major, in both cases to avoid some of the problems with register, and to enable greater use of open string pedals. The other suites are in their original keys.
