Air On A G String by Johann Sebastian Bach
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


The timing is 4/4. I have used spacing to indicate the timing
so that the initial sequence is very strung out with four
beats to the bar and later as the notes become closer the
grouping of notes indicates which are to be played together.
Some bars have a single or very few  notes. If they're at the
start of the bar then allow them to ring throughout that bar
(ie everything is spaced according to time at playing)
All this stuff is pretty self-evident but timing is very
important in this piece, listen to it and you'll see what I
mean.

Basic Bar Structure (smallest spacing = 1/16 note)
