Bach Lute Suites

Note: I highly recommend that you buy a trusted modern edition with good fingering:

The Solo Lute Works of Bach: Edited for Guitar by Frank Koonce (Amazon Link)
Why buy? Because you want an edition of someone who is trusted and professional and someone who has poured over the originals. I think Koonce’s edition is pretty good, he always documents his changes and the edition has pictures of the originals for reference. His fingering is good overall, only a few little things I would change.

Keep in mind that:
BWV 995 – Suite in G minor is a transcription of Cello Suite No. 5, BWV 1011
BWV 1000 – Fugue in G minor is a transcription from Violin Sonata No. 1, BWV 1001
BWV 1006a is a transcription from Partita No. 3 in E major BWV 1006 for solo violin
