Open strings in strummed chords were not shown in the tablature; add as many open strings as sound good. Take a moment to re-draw the ^ arrowhead right at the top of the associated stem. Explanation of symbols: " = trill (starting on upper neighbor). , = mordent (main note to lower neighbor and back to the main note). . = do not strum this string in the chord. Octave doublings: If you are playing on a modern, single-string guitar, consider adding or substituting the next octave up almost everywhere you see a 4th- or 5th-string note. Performance style: consider playing the 8th notes inegales, that is, as dotted 8ths or "swing" 8ths (triplet feel). Leading measures in Carre's original tablature: 1 8 14.
