Double by David Kellner (c.1670-1748) from Auserlesene Lauten-Stücke, (1747) arranged for guitar. The original tablature is for 11-course lute so there is some re-voicing of chords and octave changes. A double was usually a variation of the previous movement in a suite (often the same bass line and harmonic progression). The previous Sarabande in my book is the theme for this double so they make an excellent pair. Make sure to compare the two movements to see their similarity. They share an almost identical bass line and harmony. They occur right next to each other in the original Baroque tablature and are definitely linked in this fashion. I take a slightly faster tempo for the double.

Here’s the Sarabande again so you can compare them.
