Guitar tabs

Last week someone asked for the tab for Bach's Prelude from BMV 999
(Praelude in A chord diagramC majorC moll pour la Lute di J S Bach).  Originally for lute
in A chord diagramC majorC minor,  well to guitar in A chord diagramD MajorD minor.  It is one of Bach's most
popular pieces for guitar.  It was originally in Cm, but is trans-
posed to A chord diagramDmDm for guitar.  I like to play it brisk and flowing with
a slight accent on the the base notes.  It is in 3/4 time; the |'s
represent 8th notes.  Let me know if you find any mistakes.
Prelude, BMV 999                         Johann Sebastian Bach
