WELL TEMPERED CLAVIER
PRELUDE 1 / C-major
by J.S. Bach

Piano arranged for guitar and bass (because guitar can't play notes
below d)
But until 18th measure the bass isn't needed - just see yourself!

Transcribed and tabbed by Tom Mitterfellner (it took me about two days)

Hints:
Dropped d-Tuning seemed suitable to me (low to high: D A D G B E)
You may find it easier to hammer-on than to pluck each note individually
when there are two notes on one string to play.
All fingerings are suggestions I feel quite comfy with.

Here we go ... hope you enjoy!
