Bach for Banjo

20 Pieces Arranged for 5-String Banjo

Series: Banjo Format: Softcover Composer: Johann Sebastian Bach Arranger: Mark Phillips

The banjo shares many of the same sonic qualities as a harpsichord, so although it's so closely associated with more homespun genres, the instrument actually lends itself very well to classical music! The pieces in Bach for Banjo are in tablature only with chord symbols, arranged at the beginning to intermediate level for five-string banjo players. As in classical guitar arrangements, the melody and harmony are combined. Most pieces are on facing pages with no page turns required, and beginners can pick through the selections at a slow pace. The book features just the best-known parts of 20 beloved Bach pieces: Air on the G String • Arioso • Minuet in G • Sheep May Safely Graze • Sleepers, Awake • and more.
