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