FOR BAROQUE GUITAR: This tablature is faithful to Sanz's original for the 
  Baroque guitar.  It has been flipped "right-side up."  Continual rhythm 
  information is shown.  If you have a modern guitar, consider adding or 
  substituting the octave above any note played on the 4th or 5th string.  
  In strummed chords, add as many open strings as sound good.  Or, try 
  the ready-to-go version for MODERN GUITAR.  

Fixes to the original (m=Measure; p=Place in measure; s=String): 
  In the original, Sanz supplies a few fingerings, using 1, 2, 3 or 4 dots 
  to indicate the left hand finger.  You're on your own here.  

  This is the first of 3 pieces on this page.  The text across the top of 
  the page reads, "Pavanas por la D, con Partidas al Aire Español, Una 
  Jiga Inglesa y Bailete Frances."

Explanation of symbols: 
  " = trill, generally starting on upper neighbor. 
  # = vibrato. 
  , = mordent, main note to lower neighbor and back to the main note. 
  ^ = up strum (toward treble). 
  v = down strum (toward bass). 
  z = rest symbol. 
  ~~~~~~ = slur the notes above the wavy line. 

Modern guitar version: 
  M34-end. Sanz uses the campanelas (cross-string) effect here.  Obtaining 
  a similar effect on the modern guitar requires big changes to the original 
  fingerings.  Ideally, every note should be played on a different string 
  from its neighbors.  I added slur symbols to show notes which Sanz placed 
  on the same string and are not part of the campanelas effect.  

  M31-33.  This looks like a place to add octaves above the 5th string 
  notes.  They are already given emphasis with a vibrato, so why not beef 
  them up even further with the octave?  For me, it sounds better without 
  the added octaves.  

Leading measures in Sanz's original tablature:
  1 12 24 34 42.  Last measure is 50.
