About this tab version
Transcribed from source material, useable with acoustic/electric with or without plectrum. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Johann Sebastian Bach
Cello Suite No 1 - Prelude
Key: G-Major

Transcribed from source material. I added fingerings for tricky parts and avoided open strings as much as
possible so you can play cleanly without open strings ringing, also with a pick.
Hope you like it! :)
