Folias

by Gaspar Sanz

Title:     Folias
Composer:  Gaspar Sanz
Source:    Instruccion de Musica sobre la Guitarra Española
Location:  Tomo 2, page 3, 4th piece ("d") on page.
Short ID:  gs2.3d
Date:      1675

Tuning:    Baroque guitar (A D G B E).
Time sig:  3

Fixes, modifications and comments (M=Measure; p=Place in measure; s=String): 
  M33 original rhythm was half.  Changed here to dotted-half.
  M47 original rhythm was 8th (8th 8th 8th 8th).  Changed here to 
    8th (8th 8th 8th) 4er.
  M49-M50 original has a full-length double bar, slightly decorated, 
    separating these measures.  Sanz usually uses full-length double bars 
    to separate one piece from another.  (The other double bars in this 
    piece are Sanz's regular half-length kind.)  

Tablature elements to be added by hand:
  None.

Explanation of symbols: 
  " = trill, generally starting on upper neighbor. 
  # = vibrato.
  , = mordent, main note to lower neighbor and back to the main note.
  Esta Glosada Toda se Corre. = play fast.  "This whole gloss (that is, 
    variation) races."

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.  
  
  M20.  I moved a trill from the "bass" note to the treble note.  

Leading measures in Sanz's original tablature:
  1 24 48.  Last measure is 65.
