OK, time to wrap up this tasty little tune. When we last left our hero, we were in B Major. Now, Bach uses a series of patterns to modulate us back to the home key of E Minor. Things get a little hairy in mms. 22-23 as the bass starts to get busier. Start at a slow tempo, and gradually increase it until you have 22-23 down cold. When you hit measure 24, start to slow down before you eventually hit the final notes of the piece in measure 25. Take a bow. You've just played an important piece in any guitarist's reportoire...
