Here’s a free sheet music edition of Sonata in A Major by by Domenico Scarlatti (1685–1757). This piece is originally for keyboard (harpsichord) but is arranged here for guitar. Very little has been changed from the original besides some octave leaps in the bass. I’ve made a free copy to attract guitarists to the site and a tablature (tab) version for those who need it.

Keep in mind that I use my own fingerings and used the keyboard music for the transcriptions so there might be some minor changes in each version.
English guitarist Martin Bickerton plays Sonata in A by Domenico Scarlatti (1685-1757). This comes via his YouTube Channel and his lesson series titled “Tuned Up”. He plays the sonata and then talks about the piece and also gives a lesson on exercises for: 1) Light Touch and Feel: The Buzz Note Exercise; 2) Consistency in Sound: L and R hand fingering; and 3) Planned Performance: what you want to say and when. Looking forward to more lessons, go subscribe to him on YouTube if you haven’t already.
