In this tutorial we will learn the complete transcription of Bach's "Prelude In C Major". This piece was originally from Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier which is a kind of early keyboard. The piece consists of a long flowing series of arpeggios or chords played one note at a time with the notes held. The fretting hand has some challenging chord shapes and the picking hand will be required to do a repeated fingerpicking pattern.

This transcription is in C major, in 4/4 time, using straight 16th notes and we'll aim for about 60 BPM.
