This Minuet in G is an iconic Baroque work originally for keyboard and found in J.S. Bach’s Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach. For a long time it was attributed to Bach but it is now know to be the work of Christian Petzold (1677–1733). Although somewhat easy on piano, this work is clearly in the intermediate level when played on guitar. I’ve seen many poor versions of this work online and in books so have made an arrangement that is very close to the original (see the original keyboard manuscript below). YouTube Lesson Link (HD)
