WELL TEMPERED CLAVIER
PRELUDE 1  / C-major
by J.S. Bach

Piano arranged for guitar and bass (because guitar can't play notes 
below d)
But until 18th measure the bass isn't needed - just see yourself!

Transcribed and tabbed by Tom Mitterfellner (it took me about two days)

Hints:
Dropped d-Tuning seemed suitable to me (low to high: d A d G B E)
You may find it easier to hammer-on than to pluck each note individually 
when there are two notes on one string to play.
All fingerings are suggestions I feel quite comfy with.
