Bach duets (Grade 1, Grade 1+)

I've recently been arranging pieces from Bach's Notebook of Anna Magdalena Bach for guitar duet. Originally written for keyboard, Bach gathered them together into two books in the 1720s and presented them to his wife, Anna Magdalena. They make great easy duets - as well as giving us a feel for domestic musical life in the 18th century.
In the "Aria" I have simplified the rhythm slightly in one or two places.
