Guitar transcriptions of Bach’s famous fugue, whether the version for violin or the eighteenth-century lute intabulation, rarely contain right-hand fingerings. The absence of right-hand fingerings—or the absence of a reasoned approach in working out right-hand fingerings—in complex contrapuntal music is one of the main reasons guitarists become frustrated when studying Bach. This edition offers solutions that can help when playing lines that imply more than one voice.
In addition to detailed fingering for both hands, the “Performance Notes” section presents guidance to help develop left-hand finger independence.
Six pages of music, two pages of performance notes, information about OrpheusOnFire Editions, and a cover page.
