Listen Video Lesson Adaptations Because it was written for an instrument so similar to the guitar, it is particularly well-suited to play on the guitar today. That could, of course, be played as an open E string on string 1. Give this tune to 10 players and you may well end up with 10 different ways to play it—some smoother than others, but all more or less correct. Doing so will help you to examine each note or chord, and see simultaneously all of the different ways in which it can be played. Until then, it is best to find one good source to learn from and stick with it.

The Bourree was originally a dance of French origin, and was imported into some of the later Baroque suites as an additional movement between the stately Sarabande and the lively final Gigue. Sometimes a Gavotte, Passapied or Minuet would be included at this point instead of a Bourree. These pieces were known as galanteries, and would sometimes appear in a pair, e.
This particular Bourree is written in two parts, i. On recombining the two parts it will then be easier to hear and bring out the two melodic lines. A prime example of this is the bottom E on the first crotchet in bar 1. Unless this is damped after being played it will ring out for the whole of the first bar and create a muddy sound.
The technique for damping the open string is as follows: Play the low E with the right hand thumb. Now play the second crotchet A in the bass with the right hand thumb.
Immediately after playing the A bring the right hand thumb to rest on the low E to stop it sounding. Here the damping is a by-product of the left hand simply playing another note on the same string, and is of course perfectly acceptable.
