"Tapping Into Bach" by Greg Howard

Greg's third method book for the Chapman Stick features StaffTab arrangements of nine familiar pieces by J.S. Bach, each with preparatory exercises. Standard notation versions also included.

Printed in large format (9x12) for easy reading.  The pieces, presented in order of difficulty:

  • Minuet in G Major (BWV Anh. 114)
  • Minuet in G Minor
  • Minuet in D Minor
  • Minuet in G Major (BWV Anh. 116)
  • Musette in D Major
  • Bourrée in E Minor
  • Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring
  • Prelude, Cello Suite No. 1 in G Major
  • Invention 4

This book is written specifically for the 10-string Baritone Melody tuning or 12-string Classic tuning.  It also works without modifications with the Greg's Extended Alto tuning.  The material can be easily adapted to other tunings, including the 12-string Matched Reciprocal tuning and Alto tuning.  Use with other tunings is possible but will require more modification of note placement.  Future versions for other tunings are planned, beginning with Raised Matched Reciprocal.

Edited by J. F. Brissette, Claire Steger, Glenn Poorman and Gene Perry.  Cover Art by Art Durkee. 72 pages. Printed on recycled paper.
