Again, Bach's use of counterpoint technique is a very important aspect of this piece. Counterpoint is the technique of combining two or more melodic lines in such a way that they establish a harmonic relationship while retaining their linear individuality.
This main theme is an eight measure melody. The first four measures form a half cadence phrase ending on the V chord. The next four measures are the answering phrase ending back on the I chord to form a full cadence. Take you time to learn each position and motion and gradually combine them. Be patient with yourself!
After getting the motions under your fingers then slowly start to put together small pieces. Plan ahead as much as possible! Plan where your fingers need to go and repeat these small pieces over and again. You can play any small piece that is necessary until you get it right. Patience and persistence are the keys here.
I find it quite easy (so far!) to navigate, and found the "where do I start" to be very helpful! I'm getting there!!
I LOVE the forum, too. I've never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! Congrats on a WONDERFUL site!!Good job!
