Bach Cello Suite #1 Prelude (Alt Take)

Here is an alternate take of the Bach Cello Prelude (BWV 1007) on guitar.  I fell in love with the Pablo Casals recordings of the Bach cello suites a few years back.  The prelude to the first suite is oft adapted for guitar, but it’s still a great piece to play.  Hope you enjoy.

Lágrima by Francisco Tárrega

Lágrima is one of my all time favorite songs on guitar.  Written by one of the premiere composers for classical guitar, Francisco Tárrega, it plays to the guitar’s strengths and offers many possible interpretations.  The song is simple, yet profound, saying a lot in a short amount of time.  I also think Lágrima translates well to the steel string guitar – the ringing sustain brings an added brilliance to the song.
