Grade 3


Technique
AABB. 20 bars totals. Play Sarabade (BWV995) Slow.
Bar [6] has a full barre chord plus Pinky hinge Barre. Use your pinky and
flatten the tip joint of your pinky finger to barre.
Bar[17] and [18] Hardest measures fo me, keep the finger moving during
these measures.
On slow songs that are sparse in texture, bass notes must be held as long
as possible. Every measure has at least one bass note suspended.
So suspend them notes! Sarabande is left hand dominant so pay careful
attention to the finger.

Tips
This song is rather dark and mysterious and unlike bach's signature sound.
Bwv is accepted as his arrangement and bot the work of a copyist.
Bwv995 is a fairly simple song once you have learnt the finger positions.
This song is quite dissonant (borderline in tune). Take care not to hit the
wrong note because it will really sound bad-no pressure. : )

Bar[6] Double Bar and Alternatve

You will notice there's a Double Bar. It's no mistake. Here it shows
pinky hinge barre chord. use your pinky and flatten the tip joint of
your pinky finger. If this is too hard for you try the alternative Bar
below. Although I must warn you The suspended bass in this version can't
be sustained as long!
