Forgive my nascent video editing skills but I really wanted to add in some guitar since counterpoint is so fundamental to the works of Bach.
Originally written in Eb for lute, guitarists (Julian Bream et al) set it in D and I have transposed it to G for ukulele. It was a challenge for my old brain to remember 3 minutes of music, I had to play it many times...

Very nice, Laurence! Makes me want to try a Bach piece of music that I love, but it would be super-challenging! :)

Thanks Joseph, I am sure there must be tab out there for some Bach pieces. Just take it slow and keep going to the finish. Sort of like climbing Mnt. Everest with training wheels.

Great stuff matey. I haven't listened to my Bach collection (or any of my classical collection to be honest) for far to long. This has just inspired me to put my headphones on and enjoy some great music. Thanks mate.

Yes Dave, there's nothing like a bit of Bach when you're in the mood - not many are still that popular after 300 years!


Very lovely.
Thanks - glad you enjoyed it!
