Title:     Marionas
Composer:  Gaspar Sanz
Source:    Instruccion de Musica sobre la Guitarra Española
Location:  Tomo 2, page 7.
Short ID:  gs2.7
Date:      1675

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

Fixes, modifications, comments (M=Measure; p=Place in measure; s=String): 
  M45p3s3.  The original tablature shows a squiggle that looks most like a "5". 
  I changed it to a "0" here.  (Compare with m51.)  Perhaps Sanz was 
  considering a "5" on string 4.

  M54.  The original tablature shows a bar line after place 1.  Bar line was 
  ignored here.  

  M76-80,83.  Sanz uses alfabeto for the chords in these measures.  All other 
  chords he spells out explicitly.

  M84p2.  I left the chord as it is given in Sanz's original tablature.  You 
  deal with it.

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

Tablature elements to be added by hand:
  Slurs.  If only a starting point is given, slur includes all the following 
  uninterrupted notes on the same string.
    M83 p2s1 p9-11s2.
    M85 p2s1 p9-11s2.
  You might want to fill out the 16th note beams. 
  You might want to neaten the appearance of the arrowheads. 

  Or, see the ready-to-go version in PDF format. 

Explanation of symbols: 
  " = trill, generally starting on upper neighbor. 
  # = vibrato.
  , = mordent, main note to lower neighbor and back to the main note.

Strums: Arrowheads ^ and v indicate strums. Open strings in strummed chords 
  were not shown in the tablature; add as many open strings as sound good. 

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: 
  M75,81. I brought in the high G above the open 3rd string.  

  M75-82. Sanz uses the campanelas (cross-string) effect here.  Obtaining 
  a similar effect on the modern guitar requires big changes to the original 
  fingerings.  I added slur symbols to show notes which Sanz placed on the 
  same string and are not part of the campanelas effect.  Ideally, all the 
  other notes should be played on a different string from both of its 
  neighbors.  

  M94p2. At first, I wasn't sure if this was to be interpreted as a simple 
  G chord, or whether the previous chord was to be held, but changing the 
  note on the 1st string to the 3rd fret.  So I didn't fill it out.  It is 
  a simple G chord.  
  
  . = do not play this string in a strummed chord.  

Leading measures in Sanz's original tablature:
  1 19 35 51 68 79 92 115.  Last measure is 127.

Thanks to Roberto Neri for his proofreading help.
