Air on G string (Bach)

D & G strings, originally uploaded by Aigred.

My attempt to like this song is futile. The character of the piece is slow and parkinson-like. But here's an interesting fact: If you transpose ( don't ask me how) down an octave you can play the ENTIRE song on the G string. And that's how it got its name:)

Thanks for that bit of trivia. I do like this piece. Maybe it reflects my sedentary nature :)
