Notes
Baroque Era. Solo Guitar. Drop D tuning. 3/8 time signature. Key of G major. 3 pages 33 bars.

Like the passepied, a Baroque dance movement, this variation is in 3/8 time with a preponderance of quaver rhythms. Bach uses close but not exact imitation: the musical pattern in one part reappears a bar later in another (sometimes inverted).
