J.S. Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D Minor (BWV 565) on Classical Guitar - Music, Tab and Sheet Music
Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) was one of the greatest composers of all time. His death in 1750 is generally considered to be the end of the Baroque era in music history. One of his most famous works is the Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, which was originally written for Organ.

The recording that I own of this piece on organ is by E. Power Biggs. I highly recommend it!
Transcription for Guitar
A common trend in the classical guitar world is to transcribe music originally written for other instruments to guitar. In this case, Philip Hii recently transcribed this entire work for guitar.
