Bach's Bourree in E Minor

As far as the right hand goes, you can use your fingers or even a finger and a pick, as there are never more than two notes being fretted at the same time. In fact, you can even play it with just your thumb and index finger and it'll sound fine, but this is definitely not recommended technique.

The main thing is to make it smooth and fluid, and really let the longer notes ring. It's basically a melody line over a walking bass and it really gets your fingers moving at higher tempoes.
