Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring- Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)
"Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" is the English title of the 10th movement of
the cantata Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben, BWV 147 composed by Johann Sebastian Bach.
Today, it is often performed at wedding ceremonies slowly and reverently, in defiance
of the effect suggested by Bach in his original scoring. Whatever the tempo, this chorale

movement is one of Bach's most enduring works.


Technique
Left hand plays the major role in "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring". There are many rapid
succesion of chord changes. Delivery is in triplet time and needs to be quick. Good

thing is there are no barred chords. Right hand having the easier task, plays the
3 predominant bass of each bar. Strike with thumb for emphasis.

Tips
Take Note that Main riff has 3 variations although slight (an extra bass note here
and there). Since this song is at a lively tempo, What you won't want to do is fumble

with the chords and lose the tempo. Pay close attention to the left hand fingering
to ensure economy of hand movement between chords.

Why are there 7 strings for section 15?
