Bwv 1068 Air On The G String tab by Bach Johann Sebastian

Bach Johann Sebastian guitar tabs for Bwv 1068 air on the g string

Guitar tabs with lyrics

Below is a transcription for guitar of one of Bach's most
beautiful compositions. This guitar arrangement was made using the
original score for string orchestra. The sustained sound of
violins in the orchestra is what gives this piece its unique and
instantly recognizable coloring; the main goal of the present guitar
transcription has been to preserve this sound. In particular, the
arrangment was done in A chord diagramC majorC major (not in the original A chord diagramD MajorD major) to use the
open string voicings as much as possible. Also, all of the polyphony has
been preserved making the sound richer and, at the same time, making the
piece rather technically involved. The timing is 4/4. Enjoy!

                                AIR
                     from Orchestral Suite No. 3
                              BWV 1068

                                                             J. S. Bach
Transcribed for guitar by A. Melikidze
