Anybody tried to play this one a 5 string?
If DB virtuosos can do it (at pitch) on a 4 string upright, I'm sure a skilled BG player could do it on a 4 string.
Yeah its a lot of fun. I originally played it on my EADGC 5-string, but after I read your thread I played it on my fretless 4-string. Its actually a lot more fun without the high C string. Start off with one of the other movements from the first suite. I think the Gigue is the easiest, then move on to the prelude.
On the part near the end, where it goes up chromatically to the high G, I use my thumb to sound the first harmonic on the D string. I think that's the best way to do that passage on a four-string.
i play the gavotte on a 4string fretless out of tune all over the place until i get motion sickness
Yes, but you can also do it on a standard 4 if it has 24 frets.
