Españoletas

by Gaspar Sanz

Title:     Españoletas
Composer:  Gaspar Sanz
Source:    Instruccion de Musica sobre la Guitarra Española
Location:  Tomo 2, page 5, 1st piece ("a") on page.
Short ID:  gs2.5a
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): 
  M9 original showed no rhythm  symbols.  Assumed to be 4er 4er here.  
  M12p1 trill symbol "T" in original was equidistant from 2nd and 3rd string 
    fret numbers.  Trill applied to 2nd string here.  

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

  It seems (to me) that this piece comprises 3 separate 25-measure 
  Españoletas.  There is a full double bar line after measure 25 and another 
  one after measure 50 which is more ornate, decorated with cross-hatching.  

  The double bars separating 8-measure phrases within each 25-measure 
  Españoleta are short in Sanz's original tablature.  They cover only the 
  middle 3 strings of Sanz's 5-string tablature staff.  Notice that at these 
  spots the beats do not add up.  

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.

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 26 44 61.  Last measure is 75.
