Tips

Bach Gavotte I
Gavotte 1 can be played either on it's own or together with Gavotte 2 in this
order: (Gavotte 1 - Gavotte 2 - Gavotte 1). Gavotte 1 is in general is harder
than part 2. It is also longer of the two. Gavotte is a French dance during
the 17th and 18th centuries. It is part of the optional dances of the Baroque
Suite.


Technique
The song is filled with pull offs except at Bar [13]. Make sure you hold Barre
Chord at the first fret.
For Bar [16] last note "A", the LH finger is 3. This is the best for transition
for me, you can substitute with 2 if you want. AA-BC-BC. Play Part A twice
followed by (B then C) twice. Part C is a variation of Part A at the end with
the closure.


Tips
As long as you keep to the chords on the left hand. Plucking the wrong string
or an extra string shouldn't sound that bad. Always hold bass as long as possible.

Tips


Gavotte II can be played either on it’s own or together with Gavotte 
I in this order (Gavotte I – Gavotte II – Gavotte I). Gavotte II is 
in general easier and shorter of the two. Gavotte 2 features the 
alternating finger (mi) plucking technique. Gavotte is a French dance 
during the 17th and 18th centuries. It is part of the optional dances 
of the Baroque Suite. 

Technique.

Bar 3,14,18 - Right Hand 6 running notes (mi-mi-mi)
Part B has some tricky fingering. Good news is Part B is only played 
once in Gavotte 2. Part A is played 5 times and Part C is played 2 
times. The order is AA-BA-CA-CA.

Tip
Besides Part B's fingering, practice on the alternating fingering. 
After that you can go learn gavotte 1 which gives good practice to 
your pull offs or if you know both Gavottes already, even better! 
Now you can play the entire Gavotte together. 
(Gavotte I – Gavotte II – Gavotte I)

AA-BA-CA-CA

PART A (Play twice)
