However I wasn't in possession of a baroque lute or knew anyone close, so I had to learn how to read Baroque tablature from scratch, here I must thank Mr.
Rob Mckillop for his helps. I've started with transcribing Kapsberger's years old "Libro primo d'intavolatvra di lavto" fret by fret, it was easy enough once you knew all the symbols and indicators, and the layout of Baroque lute.
And it helps that Italian tablature kinda looks like modern tabs, which is the opposite of French Baroque tabs.
I have then attained raw transcription of the Toccata III. With the help of musescore I translated it into Piano clefs. This was the easy part, the real technique lies in the arrangement of the piece, of which I lack. You have to be a serious guitarist and arranger to do this properly, and I must say that I am neither.
Therefore what you see in front of you might be very problematic in terms of guitaristic idiom, or music theory perfection. My method was to remove all the impossible bass notes at first, such as D2, therefore the first problem I dealth with was octaves.
Other than the impossible notes, I had to shift some of the notes in some measures up an octave in the beginning I had already shifted the whole piece down an octave , in order for them to be reasonably playable. One interesting part is the succesion that starts from measure 28, and then again in measure 37, here I have shifted the notes up an octave, to their original places, because firstly it was a lot harder to do it in the previous octave, and secondly and more importantly, I think this shift gives a character, a color to the parts, it might be because I shifted the whole thing down at the beginning, but it's up to the player to decide where he wants to play these parts.
I especially like the measure to be played brightly and an octave higher. Then I had to rearrange some of the chord voicings in order for the arrangement to be playable, at least for me, though almost never changing the top note, in order for the progression of melody to be felt as the original.
Lastly, though in very few measures, I had to remove some of the notes from chords, which I saw as the least important in the given chord.
The various arpeggios you see in this sheet is from the recording of the great Paul O'Dette, I have closely tried to emulate his arpeggios but at one point decided to stop doing that, because it was his style and there are also other performers that have great sound. That might sound strange, but there's a reason for it.
In order to wring out some of those tightly-packed 3-note chords in the treble, it was necessary to finger them in higher positions. In some cases, that put the required bass note out of reach. By lowering the 6th string, its notes are shifted higher up the fingerboard, thereby putting them back in reach. It occurred to me that a better way to go might be to lower the 1st string to D - sort of "collapsing" it in on its closest neighbors. You might have to be a little bit more on your toes right-hand-wise since there are more instances where the treble notes are not on 3 adjacent strings, but that makes the piece a good right-hand exercise being stoic about it.
In any case, I've worked up both versions in tablature for you to try. If you don't need convincing, I suggest going straight for the second one.
Should be easier! If it didn't involve so much typing, I'd give you the whole of Richard Yates' very interesting introductory article to the "Toccata Arpeggiata", but here are some of the main points often quoting Richard.
