I would like to learn how to play Bach on the piano. I'm not really a pianist, more of a guitarist who picked up some keyboards on the way. My left hand playing is non existent, other than playing basic chords while playing melodies with the right hand.

With that in mind is there a minor key Bach (has to be in minor) piano or harpsichord piece that I can learn?

The "Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach" likely is a good source for not-too-hard works, notably "Minuet in D minor, BWV Anh. 132"


The prelude BWV 926 in D minor is a great one I think. It is superb and will give you some basics of a good baroque style if you work it properly.
