Short ID: AC60. Title: Menuet 2 (second desus) Composer: Anthoine Carre. Source: Livre de pieces de guitarre et de musique. Page 60. Date: ca. 1690? Tuning: Baroque guitar (A D G B E). Time sig: 3. Note: Carre called this piece "Menuet"; I added the "2" to distinguish it from the first Menuet in the suite. Fixes, modifications and comments (M=Measure; p=Place in measure; s=String): None. 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. M10 p2s1. 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. Take a moment to re-draw the ^ arrowhead right at the top of the associated stem. Explanation of symbols: " = trill (starting on upper neighbor). , = mordent (main note to lower neighbor and back to the main note). Octave doublings: If you are playing on a modern, single-string guitar, consider adding or substituting the next octave up almost everywhere you see a 4th- or 5th-string note. Performance style: consider playing the 8th notes inegales, that is, as dotted 8ths or "swing" 8ths (triplet feel). Leading measures in Carre's original tablature: 1 10. Last measure is 16. *** Download and edit out all material above and below the tablature. *** See my printing tips in the page, "General comments on the tablature." *** Print out starting with the title line below.
