Mudarra - Fantasia del quarto tono

Another of those six pieces for the four-course Renaissance guitar from Mudarra's Tres libros in the original tablature (the notation corresponds to low G tuning for the uke).

Makes me think of Spain: I recently chanced upon web pics of Julio Romero de Torres' paintings. I had visited the museum that bears his name in Cordoba years ago. It left a powerful impression at the time, but I had forgotten all about it. You can see more of these on the museum's web site.
