    I haven't got far into this collection, but I think it's worth the money for Bach's famous Air alone. Like Dominic Miller's transcription, Richard has chosen the key of D which I think sounds better than the more usual key of C. (Although I do prefer...

    Dominic's simple D - Bm arpeggio intro.)Although I haven't attempted them, I think Richards choice of the pieces from the WTC curious, being very pianistic in style. I think there are pieces from the WTC more suitable for transcription to guitar than the ones in this collection.
