Prelude no.1   by Johann Sebastian Bach
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Retabulated by correction of 'Jurgen's' post.

Looking at the original piano score I noticed some disparities between it
and Jurgen's tabulation. I have therefore attempted to correct it.
Also, the low E must be tuned down to D.

There may well be alternative positions that can be used so please don't
take what I've written as law!!! Experiment...
Have fun.

It is Jurgen's from here on:

"
Prelude #1 was originally written as an exercise for Bach's students and
is probably one of the most famous preludes from "The Well-Tempered
Clavier". Every classically-trained pianist knows it, but it is
also a beautiful piece for guitar. It consists of a series of arpeggio's
and it should be played as smoothly as possible. Every measure must be
played twice, except for the last two (measures 34 and 35).
I jotted down this transcription a few years ago. I think it was in a
guitar-magazine in 1986 or 1987 or so and I didn't write down the names
of the transcriber and the magazine, so I hope I don't violate copyright-
laws with this posting. Well, here it comes:
