TOCCATA IN D-MINOR (By Johann-Sebastian Bach)

Tabulated by Francis Poulin

Email: pouc@globetrotter.qc.ca

Ok... First, I have to say that all the partitions for the Toccata
available on the net sucks (sorry guys, I know you've put a lot of
work in it)! So I made my own one and here it is: the true and only
one Toccata in D-minor

This is an adaption from the original organ score.

Legend:   . quarter note    : eighth note    , sixteenth note

Adagio molto
*The notes with no duration indication are sixteenth notes.

****************************************************************
17th bar: 7th & 9th notes changed from Bb (3rd fret, 3rd string)
to B (4th fret, 3rd string)

Email kaum0@central.susx.ac.uk for suggestions. OK. Some of you may notice that it isn't in D minor but you can't have everything!!! I put it in E minor for convenience. And ... I cut it short and added an ending. If anyone can think of a better one, feel free to submit ideas. Tune your guitar down two semitones if you must but its not worth it unless you want to play with the record... but thats probably a waste of time too. v = accentuate these notes to bring out melody. Suggested right hand fingering for bars 1-4: a p a p a p etc... Left hand fingerings will be included if there's the demand.

Unlike the other transcriptions I have seen, this one is in Dm, but it is virtually impossible to play the Fugue in Dm, with the counterpoint, on the guitar, so this is simply the Toccata. I was originally turned on to this piece by the obscure heavy metal band 'Cirith Ungol' who has a version of this song on their CD 'King of the Dead'. My version is very similar to theirs, except that mine is for solo guitar whereas theirs was for two guitars and a bass. I think they also used an ebow, which gave the song a neat tone. The piece is written in Common Time(4/4) and begins Adagio. One thing to keep in mind is that adagio in the Baroque Period was faster than that in following eras, so it should be played at about 80bpm. In measures six - eight, the rhythmic pattern is 16th triplet, 16th triplet, 16th triplet, 16 duple, 16th triplet, 16th triplet, 16th triplet, 16th duple. It gives the section a very forced sound and adds to the feeling of solemnness that horror movie composers have liked for so long. Measures 9-13 are the most difficult of the whole song. I have tried tapping it, but it presents the problem of running up and needing to be picked at the beginning of each run with another finger. If anyone can find an easier way to play it, please let me know. Their are also 4 or 5 measures near the end that I did not include because it sounds very weak without both staves and is impossible to play without 2 guitars. One other thing to keep in mind is that the rhythm sounds very broken because it is riddled with fermatas and other devices. Instead of worrying about the time, play it how you think it should feel. Oh yeah, drop the low E to a D. I hope you enjoy it and I would appreciate any comments.

PD. ****************************************************** ****************************************************** Date: Tue, 10 Oct 2000 20:58:07 -0700 From: Rob Subject: toccatta tab Toccata from Toccata And Fuge in D minor by J.S. Bach When I was looking on the net for some classical pieces arranged for guitar I seen this one and decided to see how other people play it. I seen a great number of versions so I decided to tab out the way I play it. I use an electric guitar to play this. It sounds very close to the original, in my opinion. I'm not going to give right hand fingering because I don't know how to play with my fingers, I play this with a pick. At times it can be extremely difficult, but it can be done. I'll tab out the Toccata, but I will not tab out the Fuge. It is way too long. Finally, I just wanted to say that this is my first time actually tabing out a song in this fashion so try to bear with me. If you have any questions you can e-mail me at knight69@bellatlantic.net *You'll have to listen to the piece to get the rhythm right. I'm not going to bother writing it out. Just a hint though, pretty much every note is either, sixteenth, thirtysecond, or sixtyfourth.* h = hammer on p = pull off s = slide NH = harmonic T = trill F = fermata > = accent *** You can do the trills two ways. On some versions played by the organ, they only do what would be the equivilent to one hammer on and one pulloff on guitar. The other way they do it is to make them very drawn out. *** Drop D tunning: 6=D Adagio
