Essential Bach Arranged for Guitar provides guitarists with a new approach to many of Bach's masterpieces. The fingerings in the arrangements make the guitar sound rich and full, as if the pieces were written for the instrument. Attention is given to the musical line by using cross-string fingerings in a consistent manner. This approach allows the harmonies to become more evident as well. By using a more musical approach for the fingerings, playing Bach on the guitar no longer feels cumbersome. Suggested dynamics and articulations are also included. Fingerings and slurs are notated close to the notes for easy reading.
