Jiga Inglesa

by Gaspar Sanz

Title:     Jiga Inglesa
Composer:  Gaspar Sanz
Source:    Instruccion de Musica sobre la Guitarra Española
Location:  Tomo 2, page 10, 2nd piece ("b") on page.
Short ID:  gs2.10b
Date:      1675

Tuning:    Baroque guitar (A D G B E).
Time sig:  6/8 (preceded by Cut time symbol)

Fixes, modifications and comments (M=Measure; p=Place in measure; s=String): 
  M16 (last measure) original rhythm showed breve (= 8 4ers).  Changed here 
    to a double-length measure: 4 groups of 4er 8th.  

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: I did not find it necessary to add any octave notes 
  to Sanz's original.  

Leading measures in Sanz's original tablature:
  1.  Last measure is 16.  (All on one line.)
