Good morning,
I like a lot this composition by JS Bach; trying to work on it as well as I can.
Any good suggestion or advice are welcome, thanks.

Lovely! Beautifully phrased, it flows really nicely. Great final chord, too (on both versions!).

Congrats!

Nice work, Dimitri. As for suggestions, my approach to developing a Bach piece once I've learned the basic fingering and have it flowing a bit is to start thinking much more about the polyphony. As is typical with Allemands, the voices often jump among different registers and I try to emphasize this but there are often compound melodic lines within the same voice register and I look for these and decide when and where to bring them out as well. I often imagine everything as a vocal work and visualize it as a vocal performance. The trick is to think about how many people are on stage and who is singing what and when and play with that it mind. There is a lot of experiment here often but it really frees up my imagination and adds to my learning experience and playing.
