Drew Henderson: J.S. Bach on 8-string guitar. Adagio and Fuga BWV 1003
The Adagio and Fuga from J.S. Bach's second Sonata for Solo Violin BWV 1003.
This arrangement draws upon material from Bach's own arrangement of this piece for keyboard BWV 964. Seeing how Bach alters his own works to suit a different instrument was an incredibly educational experience. A change of key, notes, added harmony and tempo (Grave vs Adagio...for guitar i believe the former works better) gave me a lot of options for this arrangement.
Guitar by Patrick Mailloux (Spruce/cedar 8-string double-top)
My old 8-string is for sale if any of you are interested. It is the one i used to record the majority of my old videos. Message me for more details.
Also, i have an album for sale in iTunes.
