This easy-to-read modern tablature should be completely faithful to Francisco Guerau's original tablature. Let me know of any errors you find. Donald Sauter.

Back to the main page for Francisco Guerau, with an index to the works in his book, Poema Harmonico.
When you need a break from the guitar, please consider my page of Scrabble II for word lovers!


Short ID:  FG8.
Title:     Passacalles de 3o. tono. Proporcion. 16 diferencias.

Fixes and modifications (M=measure r=rhythm 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.
    M28 r1-3s1.
    M33 r1s1-r8s2.
    M34 r1s1-r4s2, r5s2-r8s3, r9s4-r12s5.

    M39 r1-2s3, r3s1-r10s2.
    M40 r1-2s2.
    M44 r1-2s1.
  Take a moment to fill out the 16th-note beams.

Explanation of symbols: 
  " = trill, generally starting on upper neighbor. On 8th and dotted 8th 
      notes, consider a shorter, 3-note figure - main note to upper neighbor 
      and back to the main note. 
  , = mordent, main note to lower neighbor and back to the main note.

Leading measures in Guerau's original tablature:
  1 15 25 35 42 52 61. Last measure is 64.

Note: I'm not certain which neighboring notes to use in some of the 
ornaments at the beginning of this piece. If anyone knows for sure, 
tell me and I will incorporate the suggestions here.
