I ran across this video and it reminded me I had learned this piece back in early 80s, from about 10 pages of chord charts that a friend taking classical guitar lessons prepared for me. I may even still have those pages in my "archives".
As you see, the fingering though sometimes complex and barely resembling chords, does not require fast changes. so with perseverance and a under-30 year old memory, it can be learned. I, of course, have forgotten almost completely now. But I have realized that learning this greatly influenced how I re-learned to play when i started playing guitar again in the 2000's, fingerstyle.
IN some of my compostions, people ask what chords are you playing there.. My answer is usually I don't know., my fingers just follow the progression of melody. I know what note i want, and my finger tries to reach it.
This is so different from trying to figure out the chords to a song, that I am sure, that if I hadn't learned that Bach Prelude before I stopped playing for 30 some-odd years, I would not be playing fingerstyle now, (and would still have only 1 guitar)
(Damn those butterflys and their effects!)
