J.S. Bach's Bourree (Bouree) in E Minor for Classical Guitar - Music, Tab and Sheet Music

Updated on August 18, 2011


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. You can read a biography of Bach on Wikipedia here.  One of his most famous works for the guitar is the Bouree in E Minor from Lute Suite Number 1 (BWV 996).
