Here’s a free sheet music edition of Elizabethan lutenist & composer Francis Cutting’s (c.1550–1596) setting of Greensleeves. This piece is originally for lute [Source: GB-London, British Library, Add.31392] but is fingered here for for regular guitar tuning (EADGBE). It’s a bit tricky but once you can navigate the chord shapes smoothly it’s more on the early intermediate side. I’ve made a free copy to attract guitarists to the site and a tablature (tab) version for those who need it.
