Bach Two-Part Inventions for Mandolin and Guitar - by Carlo Aonzo and John Carlini

Bach Two-Part Inventions for Mandolin and Guitar - by Carlo Aonzo and John Carlini

Milwaukee, Wi. — The Hal Leonard Corporation has announced the publication of Bach Two-Part Inventions for Mandolin & Guitar by Carlo Aonzo and John Carlini.

Two of acoustic music's most skilled musicians and arrangers combine efforts to present Bach's popular music for mandolin and guitar.

The book includes access to online audio for download or streaming of recordings of each invention plus separate mandolin and guitar parts.

Standard notation and tablature is included for both instruments.

Introduction

"These keyboard studies were composed by Bach and completed in the 1720s. We kept them in their original keys and arranged the right-hand part for mandolin and the left-hand part for the guitar. Essentially, any treble clef instruments could enjoy playing these arrangements."

 — Carlo Aonzo and John Carlini

A stylish bowlback would have been more appropriate for the cover than a cheap A-style with a magnetic pickup;)
