This is a transcription for guitar of the second movement from Johann Sebastian Bach's Violin Partita in B minor
( BWV 1002 ).

Bach's Violin partitas are an essential part of the violin repertoire. Composer and violinist George Enescu called them the "Himalayas of Violinists".

It is common practice for guitarists to draw from the violin repertoire. One of the reason is that the violin allows the player to cover a larger range without having to move his left hand up and down as much as a guitarist. This is due obviously to the scale of the violin but also due to its tuning in fifth.


Therefore this piece is particularly helpful to work on the following subject :

- Position shifting with your Left-Hand
- Right Hand with string skipping and sweeping
- How to use open triads
- How to use diminished arpeggio as a sub for a dominant chords

And also you'll learn a killer solo piece for guitar that's been written over 250 years ago !
