    "Bach Fugue" (BWV946) Arranged For Three Guitars

    Y'all,

    I arranged the "Bach Fugue (BWV946)" for three guitars.

    This composition would normally be played on a harpsichord or piano. It's not an easy task to adapt a piece of music for an instrument on which it was not intended to be played by the original composer.

    Great job on this Larry. The guitars sound very good, almost real.

    This would be a good piece for the California Guitar Trio who performed in my little town a few years back.

    Good arrangement, sounds like it could be played by even lesser trios of guitarists. It's an interesting piece also. Although it has BACH written all over it, some things are slightly different. BTW, is there a reason you chose for specific guitar performance techniques as the sliding?

    I used the occasional slide in an attempt to make the guitars sound more "real". I probably did not succeed.

    Thanks for listening and responding.

    The guitars are from the Sonik Synth 2 sample library and my sequencer is Sonar 8.5.

    Thank you for having a listen.

    You just joined the forum, you have six posts and now you want to mess with my work without even asking my permission.

    Don't do it!
