Just something I felt like doing tonight ... NOT an original song, I've tried for much of today (Saturday) to write something new, with no luck whatsoever by way of inspiration. So ... here's an arrangement of J.S. Bach's Prelude No. 1 for Solo Piano - arranged in (according to Band-in-a-Box's memo) an Americana Ballad style - instead.

Thank you BIAB for providing us with all these priceless arrangement styles ... and I hope you enjoy.

Terrific arrangement, James!

A lot of modern musicians don't give Bach enough credit. Steve, the dev behind Serum and Cthulhu isn't one of them. He includes the chord progressions from well over 100 Bach chorales with Cthulhu.

BTW, they're all public domain!

WOW, There'd have been some effort entering the progression for this...an interesting modern interpretation of the orchestra...just needs an instrument playing the melody up front.

James,

I like this—very serene and easy on the ears. Good arrangement and production. That Bach guy was pretty good, and you do him justice here! Well done!

All my best,

Deej

James.
That`s a nice chord progression ( hands up- I wouldn`t be the one to identify the guy who wrote it!);I like the Americana interpretation ...and if you add lyrics and voice to bring out the melody, who would know its not an original ballad!

A beautiful interpretation and presentation on this classic. You have a special touch with these serene instrumentals. That was a most enjoyable listen! Thanks for the calming aura.

Best to you. Be safe ...
