Playing the Lisbon Portuguese Guitarra by Ronald Louis Fernandez (continued)

Section 12c. Fado em Sol by João Victoria--in Método de Guitarra

The version of this piece in João Victória's Metódo de Guitarra appears as "Fado em Si bemol" (Fado in Bb). That piece was originally written in B Flat with an old fado tuning (FCDGCD--6th to 1st course), I have transposed it to the modern Lisboa fado tuning (DABEAB). While I have transposed it down a minor 3rd (three half steps) I have maintained the original left hand fingering. See below for commentary and transcription.
