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 the strummed chords, add as many open strings as sound good.  

  For this piece, I did not think it necessary to make any changes for 
  playing directly on the MODERN GUITAR.  

  This is the second 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."

Fixes to the original (m=Measure; p=Place in measure; s=String): 
  M16 (last measure) original rhythm showed breve (= 8 4ers).  Changed here 
  to a double-length measure: 4 groups of 4er 8th.  

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. 

Leading measures in Sanz's original tablature:
  1.  Last measure is 16.  (All on one line.)
