Sorry for ( very ) late reply, thanks everyone, I worked out my own arrangement, and fingering in the end. Will post a recording when its up to scratch. Don't you find working out your own arrangements more worthwhile? But more time consuming,!

I'd like to add my point of view, hope to be useful.

Music of Bach is really complicated, moreover it is not written for guitar. That is why I like playing as much transcriptions as I can found for a piece, and look for the interesting and undiscovered moments of Bach's original. In the end I play some version of the prelude, which is my version, based on the versions I have known. It is hardly very different then the existing transcriptions, but the process of make it clear leads one to better understanding of the music

I agree with Polifemo de Oro that the version of Yates in C is interesting and can not be excluded. I also like Aaron Shearer's transcription.

So, my suggestion is to look/hear at as much transcriptions as you can, and try to build your own point of view about the piece.

Best regards,
Anastas
