Tuning:    Baroque guitar (A D G B E).

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.  

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

Fixes to the original (m=Measure; p=Place in measure; s=String): 
  No time signature was given in the original.  Presumed to be C. 

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 6.  Last measure is 16.
