Bourree in E minor from Lute Suite 1 in E minor by J.S.Bach. Francisco Burgos Freile, guitarist

This Bourrée is from Bach's Lute Suite in E minor. It is frequently played on classical guitar. There several versions using other instruments. it has been performed on different musical styles, from Jazz to Rock music. The Rock Band Jethro Tull with Ian Anderson on the flute made it a signature melody for the band. Paul McCartney from The Beatles said he used it as a reference work to create his composition "Blackbird". Although it is a short piece, it does present some challenges for the player when it comes to getting a clear sound on the voices.
