Tips


Bouree is a lute suite in Em. Bach wrote many songs for 
various instruments like violin, cello, piano, lute etc... 
The lute is a medieval instrument with tuning similar to 

the guitar therefore Bouree translate well on the guitar. 
Piano translation to guitar is another story. Playing 
"Moonlight Sonata" on the guitar is so much more difficult 

compared to playing on the piano. So my point is if you 
like classical music especially the guitar it will be 
wise to seek out Bach who wrote much for string instrument, 
in particularly the lute. 

Technique
Approach Bouree with jumpy and lively feel. This song is 
more challenging on the left hand. Don't hold chords for 
too long, your left hand should be in constant motion. 

Thumb (p) and index (i) finger plucking mostly on the 
right hand. 

Tips
In this tab, I opt for open strings as much as possible 
rather than barred chords. Fingering is best for me. See 
if it suites you. As always if a certain part of the song 

is troubling you, try other fingering alternatives.
