johann sebastian bach
Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer, organist, harpsichordist, violist, and violinist whose sacred and secular works for choir, orchestra, and solo instruments drew together the strands of the Baroque period and brought it to its ultimate maturity.

Johann Sebastian Bach wrote compositions for every type of instrument and for every musical medium (solo instruments, chamber ensemble, orchestra, and chorus) except opera. Famous not only as a composer, but as an organist, harpsichordist and the general improviser of the age, Bach held a number of important posts as music director in the cities of Weimar, Cothen and Leipzig. BWV1007 Minuet 2 is a Cello Suite (No.1 in G). Adapted to the guitar in the key of D. Drop D Tuning.

Look for alternate chord shapes to play the same notes elsewhere along the fret. You may be able to find an easier way and thus providing a solution to overcome that particular part of the song.
