[Bars 1-18] The opening octaves should be played nice and neatly without any of the open strings ringing through. Suggested fingering for both hands is indicated. The main theme begins in bar 5 and I play this in 2nd position and in fact the notes lie under the hand to stay in 2nd position right through to bar 14. A barre is needed on beat 2 of bar 9 and beat 2 of bar 10. The grace notes in bars 12 and 13 are played together with the bass notes and land on the beat. At bar 15 we go up an octave for tonal variety and then we have the repeated bass D notes at 18.
