What would you recommend for a Bach piece?
The problem with being a beginner is that we don't understand what what don't know, and by the time we get to a reasonably advanced level, we come to appreciate just how much work it took to get there. That's why people are encouraging you to set your goals back a bit.
If you must do some Bach (and none is really easy, frankly: again, transcriptions) I'd look at the First cello suite, BWV 1007, the Prelude only. It's probably the "easiest", relatively speaking, but none of them qualify as "easy".
Another issue is, as others have said, the edition you choose. I have no bone to pick with Yates, but for what it's worth, I'd recommend Frank Koonce's for the First suite. This is because he keeps it mostly first position where possible, and very little added to it: it's one of the sparest editions I've seen. It does venture as high as ca 8th position but not for long.
There are *many* opinions, as you've seen, as to how to play Bach, because it's all transcription, even the Lute Suites were written for a keyboard instrument. At moment you want to keep it relatively simple, you can make choices later.
It's still going to be hard work, but I hope this one can give you a little bit of fun as you try it.
If you don't mind going back a bit in time to the Renaissance, you might consider music written for vihuela, like Narvaez "Guardame Las Vacas". Much easier, very fun and satisfying. You may still have a way to go before you're there but it's an easier goal to set for yourself.
Enjoy the ride!
