Well known as a performer and pedagogue, and praised for his accurate and effective methods and transcriptions, Fred Sokolow has drawn upon his wealth of experience with the guitar to help craft this challenging, yet accessible, set of melodies.

Johann Sebastian Bach (1685 - 1750), now widely regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time, was a German composer and organist of the Baroque period. Born in Eisenach to a very musical family, Bach went on to serve in many musical posts throughout Germany and would write over a thousand compositions that live on to this day. As a testament to his influence in the contemporary world, the famous Golden Record that was sent into deep space with the Voyager spacecraft contains three of his compositions, more than any other composer featured in the compilation.
Fred Sokolow is best known as the author of a library of instructional books and DVDs for guitar, banjo, Dobro, mandolin, lap steel, and ukulele. There are currently over a hundred and twenty of his books or DVDs in print, sold all over the world. He is also an active performer, teacher, and multi-instrumentalist throughout the state of California.
