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): 
  M33 original rhythm was half.  Changed here to dotted-half.
  M47 original rhythm was 8th (8th 8th 8th 8th).  Changed here to 
    8th (8th 8th 8th) 4er.
  M49-M50 original has a full-length double bar, slightly decorated, 
    separating these measures.  Sanz usually uses full-length double bars 
    to separate one piece from another.  (The other double bars in this 
    piece are Sanz's regular half-length kind.)  

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. 

  Esta Glosada Toda se Corre. = play fast.  "This whole gloss (that is, 
    variation) races."

Modern guitar version: 
  M20.  Trill moved from the "bass" note to the treble note.  
  
Leading measures in Sanz's original tablature:
  1 24 48.  Last measure is 65.
