My arrangement takes the 1st violin part and the bass part from the original and keeps them intact except for some of the octave leaps. This arrangement was created for students or guitarists playing gigs such as weddings. It should be pretty straight forward in general. The original is an orchestral suite so clearly some reduction has taken place. I try to keep the violin melody intact and the notes in the bass are accurate but it was necessary reduce the octave leaps in the bass to fit on the guitar. You can also find the tab as a hardcopy in my Classical Guitar Tab book on Amazon. Here's the YouTube Video Lesson if you want to watch it there.
