Bach Sarabande (BWV 1012)
So, when does this challenge start? Ahh, never mind!
I thought I'd kick this thing off with perhaps the most transcribed composer of all time. This comes from his sixth cello suite, and it's probably my favorite movement from all of the cello suites. Hearing it played on cello just makes me cry (in a good way)!
You can easily find a bunch of versions of this for guitar online. What I'm playing comes mostly from a transcription I have by Luis Alvarez, but I made several changes. I'd probably play it differently each day, knowing me.
