Title:     Otros Españoletas
Composer:  Gaspar Sanz
Source:    Instruccion de Musica sobre la Guitarra Española
Location:  Tomo 2, page 5, 2nd piece ("b") on page.
Short ID:  gs2.5b
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): 
  M11p1 trill symbol "T" in original was equidistant from 3rd and 4th string 
    fret numbers.  Trill applied to the 3rd string here.  
  M62 original rhythm was 8th (8th 8th) 4er 4er.  Changed here to 
    8th (8th 8th 8th) 4er.  
  M73p1 has trill symbol (T) below the chord.  I wonder if Sanz intended a 
    vibrato (#).  Cf. Gallardas (gs2.3a) measure 41.  

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

  I think this piece comprises 3 separate 25-measure Españoletas.  There is 
  an ornately decorated double bar line after measure 25 and a more modest 
  one after measure 50, 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. 

Modern guitar version: 
  M55. I added a high G above the open 3rd string.  
  M73. I changed a trill on the 2nd string note to vibrato on both fingered 
    notes. 

Leading measure in Sanz's original tablature:
  1 26 46 66.  Last measure is 75.

Thanks to Roberto Neri for his eagle-eyed proofreading help.
