Classical Guitar Music to Play: Gavotte by J.S. Bach (Arr. S. Kenyon)

Classical Guitar music for J.S. Bach's Gavotte
Edited by Neil Smith

In this trio arrangement by Stephen Kenyon, less experienced players will find this setting fits on the fingerboard without undue difficulty. Take care however to play similar figurations neatly, consistently: The temptation to play open E at the end of bar 6 (Gtr 1) should be avoided, for example. And later, in Gtr 3, bar 10, the second D sharp sounds better curtailed as the lower E appears in the bass voice, thereby avoiding the exposed clash and at the same time implying the entry of a lower part.
