This easy-to-read modern tablature should be completely faithful to Anthoine Carre's original tablature. Let me know of any errors you find. Donald Sauter.

  Take a moment to fill out the 16th-note beams.

Strums: Arrowheads ^ and v indicate strums. Open strings in strummed chords 
  were not shown in the tablature; add as many open strings as sound good. 
  Take a moment to re-draw the ^ arrowhead right at the top of the associated 
  stem.

Explanation of symbols: 
  " = trill (starting on upper neighbor). 
  . = do not strum this string in the chord. 
  ( = "chute."  A note in a chord is reached by a slur from its lower 
      neighbor.  It is not crushed like a mordent.  For example:  

         ^ ___ ___          ___ ___ ___  
         | | | | |          | | | | | |  
      _____v_______       __^___v_______
      |_(3________|       |_2_3________|
      |__3________|       |_3__________|
      |______3_2_0|   =   |_______3_2_0|
      |___________|       |____________|
      |__1________|       |_1__________|
      |___________|       |____________|

Octave doublings: If you are playing on a modern, single-string guitar, 
  consider adding or substituting the next octave up almost everywhere 
  you see a 4th- or 5th-string note. 

Performance style: consider playing the 8th notes inegales, that is, as dotted 
  8ths or "swing" 8ths (triplet feel).

Leading measures in Carre's original tablature:
  1 6 12 18 23 28 31 35.  Last measure is 37.
