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

Back to the main page for Gaspar Sanz, with an index to the works in his book, Instruccion de Musica sobre la Guitarra Espan^ola.

Short ID:  GS23a.
Title:     Gallardas.
Composer:  Gaspar Sanz.
Source:    Instruccion; tomo 2; page 3.
Date:      1697.
Facsimile: Minkoff, 1976.

Tuning:    Baroque guitar (A D G B E).
Time sig:  C.

Fixes, modifications and comments (M=Measure; p=Place in measure; s=String): 
  M58 original had a bar line after beat 3.  Bar line has been removed here.  
  Where 2 simultaneous notes are shown here with vibrato, Sanz only wrote 
    one vibrato symbol, generally below the tablature staff.  

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. 

Leading measures in Sanz's original tablature:
  1 18 31 51.  Last measure is 63.
