    Default Minuet in G - J.S. Bach - music needed

    As the post title suggest I'm looking for the sheet music for Minuet in G by Bach for the mandolin. Even with all my Googling I have had no luck. I hope to find the standard and tab version.

    I have no objection to purchasing it, if I must: but I can't find it.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Is this the one you are looking for? Minuet in G. Obviously this is originally a keyboard piece. It is from the Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach.

    I also believe it is in one of the Suzuki violin books, possibly the first one.

    Thanks Jim - I believe that is it. Unfortunately it will take a lot of work since I'm still dependent on tabs. (Hope to find a tabbed version)
    I'm new and I would like to learn something classical. I have been told that Minuet in G would be a good place to start.

    Jim is absolutely correct, this piece can also be found in the Suzuki Violin School book for violin, Volume 3. It's published by Alfred.
    If you want a PDF of this, I'll be glad to email it to you.
    I can also send you some other easy classical pieces for Mandolin.

    If you have Tabledit or the free viewer for that program you can get a tab version: Minuet in G

    thanks Jim
    I have the file and TabEdit but at this point I simply get nowhere with TabEdit.

    I need the song printed out and in front of me.

    TabEdit does a lousy job of printing. I have tried it already.

    that's it. This will do just fine. I appreciate your searching efforts.

    I have been bitten by the classical mandolin bug and this song looks like a nice simple one to get started with.
    thanks again.

    thanks

    There are many many "easy classical" pieces available for violin players of all levels. If it can be played on violin, it can be played on mandolin. I would look in the violin bin of any halfway decent music store.
    As much as I post, I pick a whole lot more. Just sayin'

    The entire staff
    funny....

    Thanks Jeff. This is good to know. I will check out those bins from now on!

    In have it from Mandozine

    http://www.mandozine.com/music/searc...rder=A&submit=

    It's a very nice tune, but the the closing double stop doesn't sound right to me. I play the B on the low string, and G on D string. sounds better.

    Could you please explain how to do that.

    I love this song and would love to have the music in a pdf. I thought the prior posted image was the same song but after closer inspection I find the versions are not the same.
    This is the version I would like to have if possible.
    I work much better when I have printed sheet music in front of me.
