Bach as a composer never actually wrote for the Classical Guitar therefore there are no Bach Classical Guitar works, however we often hear Bach Classical Guitar pieces and in fact many virtuosos play Bach as part of their repertoire. Bach Classical Guitar pieces are extremely difficult to play, because in fact they were originally written as keyboard pieces for piano, harpsichord or organ.
The fact that the pieces were written for the keyboard means that transcription is difficult, the keyboardist having 10 notes available in each chord played and the guitar a maximum of 6, so it is hard to maintain the the fullness of the keyboard version. This leads to some difficult stretches and technical difficulty in the transcribed pieces. Despite this many Bach Classical Guitar pieces are extremely popular and work very well. All the pieces included within this blog are from some of today’s guitar masters, and I really hope that you will enjoy them as much as I do.
After listening to them I know I felt compelled to go out and buy my own Classical Guitar and to get lessons and try to achieve sufficient mastery to duplicate them for myself. I truly hope that I inspire you and to just know that I may have been responsible for starting some of tomorrows great stars inspires me to further improve this site. I hope you return often, to see the changes, to leave your comments, to buy an instrument or merely enjoy the music, I know I do. So why not bookmark the site, Twitter, Digg, Stumbleupon, My Space or Facebook it to your friends and just plain enjoy the experience. I wish you all well with Guitar playing, or listening, and I hope you enjoy perusing this site as much as I have enjoyed compiling it.
