Yet another homework assignment. Had to transcribe this Bach cello piece from standard notation, and arrange it for the banjo. I'm still struggling with it, but here goes . . .

And you call yourself a "novice?" That was beautiful!

That was great!

Do you have a teacher in town who is assigning you this homework?

Thanks.  The arrangement needs a re-work to make it easier to play, and I haven't gotten around to it.

Yes, I was taking lessons at the time.  Took a break this year. I'm thinking of taking lessons again next year.

I've always liked this piece.  Valuable accomplishment  transcribing this for banjo.  Thanks.

I adore Bach and I think that your rendering is particularly vivid; the timbre you get out of your banjo is wonderful and sometimes recalls to me a harpsichord. Marco
