Air on a G string - Premium Membership


Air on a G string is probably one Johann Sebastian Bach's most loved and recognised pieces. It is taken from a much larger work - the 'Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D major, BWV 1068'.


The piece itself has a gentle yet enchanting melody and here it is transposed down one tone from D major to C major. Technically the piece isn't overly demanding although there is a difficult 5 fret stretch in bar 2 and an optional if not ambitious cross-string trill at the end for guitarists that truly wish to test their technique.
