Pavanas por la D, con Partidas al Aire Español

by Gaspar Sanz

Title:     Pavanas por la D, con Partidas al Aire Español
Composer:  Gaspar Sanz
Source:    Instruccion de Musica sobre la Guitarra Española
Location:  Tomo 2, page 10, 1st piece ("a") on page.
Short ID:  gs2.10a
Date:      1675

Tuning:    Baroque guitar (A D G B E).
Time sig:  Cut time (C with slash)

Fixes, modifications and comments (M=Measure; p=Place in measure; s=String): 
  In the original, Sanz supplies a few fingerings, using 1, 2, 3 or 4 dots 
  to indicate the left hand finger.  You're on your own here.  

  Where Sanz shows a vibrato symbol for a chord, I assume it applies to all 
  the fingered notes of the chord.  

  This is the first of 3 pieces on this page.  The text at the top of the 
  page reads, "Pavanas por la D, con Partidas al Aire Español, Una Jiga 
  Inglesa y Bailete Frances."

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.
    M27 p4s1.
    M28 p2s1.
    M28 p6-8s1.
  You might want to fill out the 16th note beams. 

  Or, see the ready-to-go version in PDF format. 

Explanation of symbols: 
  " = trill, generally starting on upper neighbor. 
  # = vibrato.
  , = mordent, main note to lower neighbor and back to the main note.

Octave doublings: If you play this on a modern guitar, consider adding or 
  substituting the octave above any note played on the 4th or 5th string. 

Modern guitar version: 
  M34-end. Sanz uses the campanelas (cross-string) effect here.  Obtaining 
  a similar effect on the modern guitar requires big changes to the original 
  fingerings.  I added slur symbols to show notes which Sanz placed on the 
  same string and are not part of the campanelas effect.  Ideally, all the 
  other notes should be played on a different string from both of its 
  neighbors.  

  M31-33.  This would seem a likely place to add octaves above the 5th string 
  notes.  They are already given emphasis with a vibrato, so why not beef 
  them up even further with the octave?  Personally, it sounds better to me 
  without the added octaves.  

Leading measures in Sanz's original tablature:
  1 12 24 34 42.  Last measure is 50.
