Bach, J. S. - BWV 0911 Fugue 1 - Video

Hi,

Here is my latest transcription. I first tried to play it in Am but the top melody become very awkward so I chose Em.
I recorded it with a Blue Snowball, but unfortunately I'm such a newbie to recording, I'm sorry the sound quality isn't great.

Hope you enjoy it,

Thanks,

Chris S.

Fantastic stuff, looks like quite a workout for the fingers! Very impressive to watch.

I'm no expert on recording, but it sounds to me like your audio is compressed - did you save it as an MP3? You'll get much better quality by saving it in an uncompressed format (eg. 16 bit PCM).

Thanks Hinterglem. Glad you liked it and also thanks for the sound quality advice. You are exactly right, I did save it as an mp3. I'll try saving it uncompressed.

Thanks again,

Chris S.

Thank you Halil,

As the old adage goes, I think looks can be very deceiving. :D
I'm always telling my friends this is how four minutes of music can turn into four months with the guitar. :chaud:
I love this Toccata so much, I really enjoyed the process.

Thanks for listening,

Chris S.

:shock: You indeed made it look easy....and I know it is not. :merci:
I enjoyed how well you played it. I have found Bach's fugues the most impenetrable of all of his music. As a naive listener, I could hear some of the structure of the fugue, and that is saying a lot. :lol:
