Mudarra - Romanesca

Yet another tune from Mudarra's Tres libros de musica, intabulated for the Renaissance four-course guitar and perfect for low G tuning. Of all such pieces by Mudarra, this one is my personal favorite. The full title is "Romanesca - O guardame las vacas": Keep the cows for me, which seems to be the name of a musical genre, a kind of pastoral, I suppose. Of course, the most famous one was by Nervaez... perhaps later.

  1. Didn't know that Mudarra had his own version of Guardame Las Vacas. Sounds quite different.
