Bach difficult to transcribe

• Nov 16, 2019 - 01:14

How would you begin to transcribe the attached. My first problem is with multiple voices. I can erase the rests that creep in. But I can't figure a way to manage the first dominant 7th. It seems impossible to place the high f# separately from the e.

I was hoping to transcribe this for guitar for someone who is shut in but plays the guitar.

Select the entire measure and you'll see by color which notes are in which voice. You can then look at the notes on beat 3 in the inspector and see the alterations I made.

I believe the only thing that won't then explain itself is the slur on beat 1. Select the B2 then ctrl+click the B4 and press S to apply the slur.
