Bach Johann Sebastian guitar tabs for Lute suite

Guitar tabs with lyrics

This is part of a lute suite by J.S.Bach.  I had a book once that
contained all of his works for the lute, but gave it away, sadly...
and unfortunately, I don’t remember which suite it’s from, nor what
movement it is.
   I transcribed this from memory, so if there are errors,
consider it “Nick’s Remix”, or something.  Note the two measures
with asterisks (*) on top: these are the only tips on the fingering
I included---I suggest barring all six strings from the bass note up
for the entire measure.  Also, allow bass notes to ring throughout.
   The original was in 3/8 time, but to make the 32nd notes easier
to type out, I changed it to 3/4.  So, the marks on top designate
eighth notes, and the spaces in between sixteenths.
   I would like to finish this song sometime, but I need to get
the music again to do so.  If you can, pick up a copy of the CD,
Bach’s Lute Suites by John Williams.  It’s has a great version of
this piece and makes me completely sick.  Work it up and it sounds
good at about 180bpm in 3/4 time.   Nick Chura ><)))*>
