Bradford Werner Plays Passacaille by Weiss

Hey it’s me! A first try playing this piece, I still need to smooth it out a bit and add some definition to the voices but here it is for now. Bradford Werner plays Passacaille by Sylvius Leopold Weiss (1687–1750) on classical guitar (originally for lute).

I recommend most people get this version of the sheet music: Noad edition.

  1. Bradford: Very nice relaxed playing. You have nailed those stretches! What guitar is that?


    I love your posts. Thank you for your work. 🙂

    • Well, it is an amalgamation of many different editions. So I did look at the tab but really I just compared published notated versions. The Noad is the closest thing and I change very little.
