The basic problem this paper is dealing with is how to convert western music notations, written for chromatic instruments, into special tablatures for diatonic instruments. There are just a few software programs facing this problem, but with the lack of full automatic operation and flexibility. This was the main reason for the development of new data formats and a new transformation algorithm, which are more suitable for the mentioned problem. Combined in an accurate software architecture, the newly developed algorithm performs the transformation from a chromatic piece of music into a data format, which is representing a diatonic tablature.
