This easy-to-read modern tablature should be completely faithful to Gaspar Sanz's original tablature. Let me know of any errors you find. Donald Sauter.

Short ID:  GS24e.
Title:     Jacaras
Composer:  Gaspar Sanz
Source:    Instruccion; Tomo 2, page 4.
Date:      1697.
Facsimile: Minkoff, 1976.

Tuning:    Baroque guitar (ADGBE).
Time sig:  3.

Fixes, modifications, comments (M=Measure; p=Place in measure; s=String): 
  M8p3. When Sanz indicates vibrato on a chord, he shows only one vibrato 
  symbol "#" below the chord.  I assume the vibrato applies to all fingered 
  notes and provide a separate "#" for each fingered note of the chord here.

Tablature elements to be added by hand:
  None.

Explanation of symbols: 
  " = trill, generally starting on upper neighbor. 
  # = vibrato.
  , = mordent, main note to lower neighbor and back to the main note.

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. 

Leading measures in Sanz's original tablature:
  1 23.  Last measure is 38.
