Cello Suite (Bach) | Hub Guitar

Cello Suite (Bach)


One of the most well-known Bach works, originally for cello. This version has been adapted for guitar note-for-note, with very few changes.

Students interested in expanding on this piece are encouraged to try the arrangement by Eythor Thorlaksson, which is in drop D tuning and features a more active bass motion.

Steel String or Nylon String?

Steel-string guitar players should play this piece with a pick to develop optimum picking technique. Nylon-string players can use an alternation between the index and middle fingers.
