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)

Fugue by JS Bach as found in "Toccata and Fugue in D minor".
~~~~~
Arranged for Classical guitar by David Atkinson (4/95).

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.

Subject: Toccata (and Fugue) in Dm

Toccata (and Fugue) in Dm
BWV 565
by Johann Sebastian Bach (the greatest composer who ever lived)

Submitted by:  Ben Pratt
jaminben@aol.com

I have seen a few transcriptions of this song in the Guitar/Tab directory,
and I would like to submit my version. 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.

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

Subject: TAB: Toccata and Fugue (some of it anyway)

Ok, first a bunch of disclaimers.
        I haven't actually listened to this played for quite a while, so
this whole thing was written from memory about half a year ago.  Luckily,
this is quite a memorable tune, so I think that it's a fair imitation of
the original.  Whether or not, it still sounds pretty cool.
        Other stuff: I'm no music major, and so I have no idea what key
this is really in (Am?).  Also, I don't have a very good grasp of timing,
so don't take my measure marks too seriously.


        This is one of my absolute favorite pieces in guitar, especially
since I arranged it myself :) .  One interesting thing to note is the use
of pedalling - this is where the high E string is played every other note.
This adds a cool twist to an otherwise simple melody, and yet adds very
little difficulty to the playing.  I suggest you use it everywhere.
        A playing note: if your guitar (an acoustic, preferably) is any
good, try not to mute (and, of course, not to hit) any of the strings that
you are not playing on.  You get this really cool reverb effect,
especially in the intro. (Well, it works on my guitar at least.)  I also
suggest you fingerpick this song; it's really hard to get that pick back
and forth between the 1st and 4th strings.

        Now then, here it is.

                                        ^^^^ starting here

I sometimes like to tap these entire three measures (without picking
anything but the first note).  Also, you can pick the melody notes and
pull-off to the pedal note.  Or, if you are using a pick and you're really
good with it, you can pick every single note.  I can't.

Please notify me of anything wrong or typoed.  If anyone has a better
version, I'd be glad to see it.  I hope everyone enjoys playing this as
much as I do...
