Bach 2 Part Inventions Guitar

These are the complete two-part keyboard inventions, BWV 772-786, freely transcribed for guitar by Richard F. Sayage, a guitarist and teacher for more than 30 years.

Eight of the inventions (nos. 2, 5, 6, 8, 9, 11, 14 & 15) were transcribed to keys easier for the guitar to work with, and Sayage notes that “the top line, typically played by the right on the keyboard, is in fact, complete. There has been very little editing of the main thematic ideas....The left hand, however, has undergone some larger transformation. The feasability of performance remains the driving issue behind said editing.”

This edition includes suggested fingerings and positions, and (written by Sayage): Discussion Regarding Bach and the Musical Invention; Note Regarding Tempo, Performance, and Transcription; Notes Regarding Ornamentation; A brief musical history of Bach (including 2 portraits).
