Between 1717 and 1723 Johann Sebastian Bach composed Six Suites for Violoncello (BWV 1007 # BWV 1012). Of these, the first three have been transcribed for Guitar in this coursebook, which in itself is a considerable amount of work. For guitarists these compositions are a real challenge # a challenge, however, that brings with it a lot of benefits. Because once you get to know them, you get hooked on them and by playing them you#ll be able to considerably refine your playing technique. But believe me, the pieces are so gripping that you#ll barely notice the effort! Every suite presented in this coursebook comprises six movements. The first of these is always a prelude, followed by five dances. The CD attached to the coursebook presents every single one of the 18 movements in its full length in order to help you interpret them flawlessly.
