Villanos by Gaspar Sanz

Villanos by Gaspar Sanz (1640-1710). PDF sheet music or tab arranged for classical guitar. This comes from my sheet music edition Gaspar Sanz Guitar Collection Volume 1 which includes Villanos, Fuga, Españoletas, La Cavalleria de Nápoles con dos Clarines, Las Hachas, and Canarios. Includes both a notation-only edition and a tab edition. Level: Mid to Late Intermediate Grades 3-7.

These popular works by Gaspar Sanz (1640-1710) originate from his Instrucción de música sobre la Guitarra Española for Baroque guitar. In 1954 Joaquín Rodrigo composed his guitar concerto Fantasía para un gentilhombre on themes from these works. A degree of arranging for modern guitar has taken place, including adding the sixth string of the modern guitar to complete logical musical lines. Besides that I have tried to keep to the original as often as possible. Here’s the YouTube performance and lesson link if you want to watch it there.
