Notes and Legend
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This collection of studies is intended for the intermediate guitarist.
In the John Holmquist video the tambora sounds like it is being played golpe
(tapping on the soundboard of the guitar) rather than hitting the strings.
In the John Holmquist video the slides are played as finger slides rather
than note slides, with the end note of the slide being played normally.

measure 1 - in the sheet there is an x-headed note on the A above the stave
(1st string, 5th fret) and above it is written 'tambora' -- there
are similar notes in other measures, some of then on the G above
the stave -- it's not clear whether they are meant to be fingered
or whether it's inconsistent notation for the tambora

measure 49 - the grace notes are played as slides up

measure 55 - the Fermata (F.) means pause before continuing with the next study

left hand fingering below the tab -
1 - index finger (forefinger)
2 - middle finger
3 - ring finger (annular)
4 - little finger (pinky)

=== - note held, length of note, duration
> - (above the tab) accented, marked, stressed
|-3-| - triplet - 3 notes played in the time of 2 notes
> > > - (below the tab) decrescendo - becoming gradually slower
f - forte - loud, strong
F. - Fermata - pause, note(s) held for longer than their value
g - grace note (ornament) - extra note(s) played immediately before the
main note, then quickly released - the following note is usually
played as a hammer-on, pull-off, or slide it is often easier
to play grace notes on the beat rather than just before it
h - hammer-on
p - (below the tab) piano - soft, quietly
p - (between the notes) pull-off
tam - tambour / tambora - the strings are played all at once by hitting them near
the bridge with a flat part of the hand (usually with the side of the
outstretched thumb)
x3 - in the sheet there is an 'x' headed note on the 3rd fret (tambora)
x5 - in the sheet there is an 'x' headed note on the 5th fret (tambora)
