Ditto on the rhythmic studies Ingeborg !   I was "just" thinking that before I logged on just now.   It's such a sssslllllooooowwwwwww melody, especially when you try to play with the video I posted.  It's hard to figure the timing, but I can "hear" it as I play....just have to work those 32nd notes.  I get messed up in which beat to follow, there's so many !

Glad I was able to help you out Ray !  I had to poke around for a bit trying to find the original version.....internet is wonderful sometimes  :-)

Thank you very much Eileen.  That was a new source for me.  The more I study the song and when and why Bach wrote this piece the more I realize the size of mountain I have taken on.  But you walk a thousand miles by taking single steps and for me following terrific guides like Beth and everyone else on this site.

P.S. The bow is back home and  yes safely inside her case. :)

Hi Ray, I found this free download for Air on G in D major.   It copies out teeny tiny but readable. I'm going to see if I can "shop" it a little larger so I don't have squint.  If that works out I'll post the music here.
