Bach Johann Sebastian guitar tabs for Bwv 997 sarabande

Guitar tabs with lyrics

This is probably one of my favorite guitar pieces to play.  When played
with passion, it can be quite breath-taking.  It will take some practice
to do it smoothly, but it is worth it.  An excellent version of this can
be found on Segovia's "The Legendary Andres Segovia in an All-Bach Program"
from the Segovia Collection (Vol 1).  I check it for mistakes, but let
me know if you find any.
It is the sarabande from one of Bach's lute suites (BMV 997).  It is in
the key of A chord diagramA minorAm and is in 3/4 time; '|'s mark the quarter note beats, '.'s
mark the 8th notes and the 16th notes are proportionally between them.

Note that measures 1, 2, 17, 18, and 19 are double spaced to accomodate
the 32nd notes at the end of the first beats.


Sarabande (BMV 997)                                Johann Sebastian Bach
