Francisco Corbetta - La Guitarre Royalle - Suite In Am tab

SUITE IN A MINOR - Francisco Corbetta (1615 - 1681)

Arranged and tabbed by Gavin Emery (gavinemery@aol.com)

Francisco Corbetta was the most renowned guitarist of his era - Gaspar Sanz 
described him as "the best of all". He was born in Italy and died in France, and
between 1639 and 1674 he published at least 6 books for guitar (one now lost).
He travelled all over Europe, taught and performed for the royalty of several
countries, and was probably the first ever "guitar hero".

The following ornaments are included, and you can use or omit them as you like:

           X    = trill (from upper note, included in brackets above.)
           )    = appogiatura (slur to note from note below.)
           ,    = mordent (slur from note to the one below and back.)
           ==   = slur (hammer on or pull off.)
