Quick Overview

A musical transcription needs to be justified by one or more valid reasons to establish a favorable balance between what the transcribed work stands to gain and what it stands to lose from the inevitable modifications which will change the course of its life as a result of the transcription. The present work achieves double merit by contributing to the enrichment of the guitar's repertoire with material whose value is beyond discussion; on the other hand, the real contribution of this work is to make it possible for the present day guitarist to have in his hands a method that focuses on the practice of polyphony. It is not only a delight listening to the performance of a work so coveted by guitarists, but one is also amazed at the extensive polyphonic horizon to be covered upon adapting for our instrument a work of such contrapuntal magnitude as The Well-Tempered Clavier by Johann Sebastian Bach.
