    Bach often translates beautifully to guitar.
    Have you heard the piece by Steve Howe
    on one of the early Yes albums? I forget the name of the piece.

    Like Mr Lumbergh I enjoy retreating into the vast depths of JSB's music. To me it's a meditation, mathematical as much as musical and always deeply spiritual. You playing is very sensitive to the music MB, I especially liked your dynamic control and the careful attention to rallantando et al. Nicely recorded too, what sort of guitar are you playing? I assume that, because you're here on the TDPRI, you must have built it yourself? Well done ;)

    Well done and well played! I studied classical guitar in college and I enjoy what you're doing there. I still listen to the standard repertoire a lot.

    Telecaster nerd and guitar instructor Ted Greene also has a lot of variations and progressions that he based on Bach, and it's worth seeking out even though it's not in the classical guitar style.

    I appreciate the real classical guitarists who perform Bach flawlessly. I know how difficult that is to pull off.

    A marvelous performance, Bravo!

    The sound of a classical guitar in the hands of an accomplished artist is the sound of angels singing.

    I know what dedication it took to get to where you are, I too once studied classical guitar, but couldn't cut it.
    Please feel free to post more videos, I personally would love to hear more..

    Thanks Henry. This is Juan Estruch guitar. I'm rather fond of it. I know little about it but it's such a warm and playable guitar. Your words are very kind

    Yes!! The Clap is worth listening to as well- not getting it though.:)
    I remember working that stuff out at age 17 ( 1973) - now the millennials can learn how to play it off YouTube.

    That's why the old guys seem to be better, they had to learn their craft. Only last night I was watching Don Felder of Hotel California fame say he was poor, self-taught, and played 95% of that song.

    I remember learning the Clap also when ideas around 15 from a CD on a guitar magazine.
