This easy arrangement was created for students or guitarists playing gigs such as weddings. It should be pretty easy and sight-readable in general. The original is an orchestral suite so clearly some reduction has taken place. I try to keep the violin melody clear but did away with the octave leaps in the bass for ease of playing. You can also find the tab as a hardcopy in my Classical Guitar Tab book on Amazon.
