This easy-to-read modern tablature should be completely faithful to Francois Campion's original tablature. Let me know of any errors you find. Donald Sauter.

Back to the main page for Francois Campion, with an index of his works for the Baroque guitar in alternate tunings.

Short ID:  FC68.
Title:     Gigue.
Composer:  Francois Campion.
Source:    Nouvelles decouvertes sur la Guitarre.
           Page 35.
Date:      1705.
Facsimile: Minkoff (1977), page 62.

Tuning:    B D G C# F# (tuning 5).
Time sig:  3/8.

Fixes and modifications (M=measure r=rhythm s=string): 
  M26r2 original showed no rhythm symbol (implying 4er). 8th symbol added here.

Tablature elements to be added by hand:
  Slurs. If only a starting point is given, slur includes all the following 
  uninterrupted notes on the same string.
    M12 r1s1.
    M27 r2-4s2.
    M28 r2s5.
    M29 r3-4s2.
  Take a moment to fill out the 16th-note beams.

Strums: Arrowheads ^ and v indicate strums. 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: To keep certain musical lines intact on the modern guitar, 
  consider adding or substituting the next octave up. For example, see:
  m28r2-3.

Leading measures in Campion's original tablature:
  1 9 18 27. Last measure is 34.
