                This is probably one of my favorite guitar pieces to play.  When played
with passion, it can be quite breath-taking.  It will take some practice  
to do it smoothly, but it is worth it.  An excellent version of this can
be found on Segovia's "The Legendary Andres Segovia in an All-Bach Program"
me know if you find any.


It is the sarabande from one of Bach's lute suites (BMV 997).  It is in
the key of Am and is in 3/4 time; '|'s mark the quarter note beats, '.'s
mark the 8th notes and the 16th notes are proportionally between them.
Note that measures 1, 2, 17, 18, and 19 are double spaced to accomodate
the 32nd notes at the end of the first beats.
