In the early 1700s, Bach's chorales enchanted listeners with their inventive h armonies, chromaticism, contrapuntal motion, and changes of tonal center. Sinc e that time, music students the world over have studied the chorales as a para gon of common practice harmony and voice leading. And by virtue of their subli me beauty, musicians continue to perform the chorales to this day. The four-pa rt texture of the chorales can make their performance on guitar - with its fin gering limitations - somewhat problematic. But by sometimes thinning the textu re to three or two parts, and sometimes inverting the lower parts (allowing th e alto or tenor to temporarily serve as the bass), we've created easy-to-play classical guitar solos that capture all the interest and beauty of Bach's orig inal compostitions.
