This forum is for our discussions on any classical guitar works. Regardless of whether these works are still under copyright, we can illustrate our discussions with extracts to a maximum length of 8 bars or 30 seconds, using attached audio files (mp3, wav or wma) or video files (mov or wmv).

This forum is for our discussions on any classical guitar works. Regardless of whether these works are still under copyright, we can illustrate our discussions with extracts to a maximum length of 8 bars or 30 seconds, using attached audio files (mp3, wav or wma) or video files (mov or wmv). Only attached files are permitted. Links to audio and video files are not allowed. However, we can say in our posts "you can hear a model interpretation by such and such a guitarist on such and such a site".

This forum serves as a place of mutual help if we are stuck on a technical or musical difficulty, whether the problem stems from the notes, the rhythm, the dynamics, or the fingering. We can post several successive versions of the extract, as our work on it progresses. This will serve to help not only the member who is presenting his work, but also indirectly the dozens of other members who are having the same issues with the same passage, but who don't have the equipment or the technical knowledge to post a recording.

As a rule there should be just one topic per work. If several discussions arise on the same work, the moderators will merge the threads together.

J. S. Bach Mein Freund Ist Mein Cantata

Post by GoldenBoy » Sat Apr 06, 2013 4:23 pm

BWV 140, Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme. Cantata 140. 6. Duet. Mein Freund Ist Mein.

So I have been struggling to get this cantata right for playing on the guitar. If anyone knows of a competent score already made please advise. Also, if anyone is interested in helping me transcribe the score acurately, I will be more than happy to colaborate.

I'll post the first few bars if people are interested.
