Contrasted with the Double, the Gigue seems almost stately by comparison. For people in the Baroque Era, however, the Gigue was about as footloose as a dance could get.
Bach, however, could not resist. He upped the ante for the musicians. Though the feet of his Baroque fans probably could not keep up the pace, they must have watched the lutenist from the sidelines with fascination as his fingers moved across the fingerboard at blinding speed, navigating the lavish embellishments and ornamental notes with seeming ease.
Today's rock guitar soloists, even with their blinding speed and improvisational excellence, pale in comparison to the legerdemain required of the guitarist who would master these pieces from the hand of the master himself, Johann Sebastian Bach. Both the Gigue and the Double are available in Los Angeles Guitar Academy's classical guitar curriculum.
