Zarabanda

by Gaspar Sanz

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

Tuning:    Baroque guitar (A D G B E).
Time sig:  6/8

Fixes, modifications, comments (M=Measure; p=Place in measure; s=String): 
  M6, M10.  Original tablature has tick marks on the string 2 line at the end 
  of the measure.  I've interpreted them as rests here.  
  
  Sanz's rhythm information is the bare bones sort where a symbol is given 
  only when a new rhythm value comes along.  Thus, the strict alternation 
  between 6/8 and 3/4 shown here is just my best guess at Sanz's intention.  

Tablature elements to be added by hand:
  None.

Explanation of symbols: 
  " = trill, generally starting on upper neighbor. 
  # = vibrato.
  z = rest.  (Fill in to make block.) 

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 measure in Sanz's original tablature:
  1.  Last measure is 12.  (All on one line.)
