Cello Prelude No. 1 – J.S.Bach


The music:

What was I thinking?

Rather than strumming all the time, I thought it’d be nice to have a go at plucking. The song that I chose was a classic cello piece from J.S.Bach. The timing is relatively simple 8 notes per bar regardless.
Break the song down into two bars and practice those 16 notes. Then move onto the next 16 notes.

This is what it sounds like on a cello https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PCicM6i59_I
Close your eyes and let it wash over you.
