Composer:  Gaspar Sanz
Source:    Instruccion de Musica sobre la Guitarra Española
Location:  Tomo 2, page 10, 3rd piece ("c") on page.
Short ID:  gs2.10c
Date:      1675

Tuning:    Baroque guitar (A D G B E).
Time sig:  9/8 (preceded by Cut time symbol)

Fixes, modifications and comments (M=Measure; p=Place in measure; s=String): 
  M1p3 unidentified blob in staff.  I ignored it.  
  M8 original rhythm was 4er (4er 4er 4er 4er) 4er 8th.  That is, the rhythm 
    symbol at p2 was missing.  Changed here to 4er 8th (8th 8th 8th) 4er 8th.  
  M16p6s2 original ornament looked more like a "w" than a "T".  Interpreted 
    here as a trill.  

Tablature elements to be added by hand:
  Slurs. If only a starting point is given, slur includes all the following 
  uninterrupted notes on the same string.
    M12 p3-7s1.
    M13 p3s2.
    M14 p3-7s1.
    M15 p3-7s1.
    M16 p3-7s2.
    M17 p3-7s1.

  Or, see the ready-to-go version in PDF format. 

Explanation of symbols: 
  " = trill, generally starting on upper neighbor. 
  # = vibrato.
  , = mordent, main note to lower neighbor and back to the main note.
  z = rest.  (Fill in to make block.) 
  suave = softly 
  mas suave = more softly

Octave doublings: If you play this on a modern guitar, consider adding or 
  substituting the octave above any note played on the 4th or 5th string. 

Modern guitar version: I did not find it necessary to add any octave notes 
  to Sanz's original.  

Leading measures in Sanz's original tablature:
  1 11.  Last measure is 18.
