Description

Prelude BWV998 J.S. Bach is a broken arpeggio (stile brise) prelude that is a homage to the lute masters of the Day, such as Bach’s friend S.L. Weiss. Who used this style of breaking up chords in a lot of his pieces.

This score has within it

  • Left hand fingering suggestions.
  • TAB, so you’re never lost on the fretboard.

The score has been carefully annotated and typeset to make learning, and reading as clear as possible. The staves have been spread for accessibility and for clarity. And finally with TAB, and LH fingering suggestions, so you will not get lost in the score.It is fully supported by this video which will walk you through the score, and the piece. And also the videos will give you my RH suggestions.

Here is Rhayn’s take on this piece, and why this guide will help you.

You are aiming for an improvised feel to the piece, as the harmony, is based on very common chord progressions that most Baroque musicians would know. This was not written for an organ, but more than likely the Lute Clavier that Bach invented, and had made especially for himself.

Note: you will need to have some technique already to play this – intermediate to advanced.
