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:  GS25b.
Title:     Espan^oletas por Otro Punto Las que se sigue
Composer:  Gaspar Sanz.
Source:    Instruccion; tomo 2; page 5.
Date:      1697.
Facsimile: Minkoff, 1976.

Tuning:    Baroque guitar (A D G B E).
Time sig:  3.

Fixes, modifications and comments (M=Measure; p=Place in measure; s=String): 
  M11p1 trill symbol "T" in original was equidistant from 3rd and 4th string 
    fret numbers.  Trill applied to the 3rd string here.  
  M62 original rhythm was 8th (8th 8th) 4er 4er.  Changed here to 
    8th (8th 8th 8th) 4er.  

  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.

  It seems (to me) that this piece comprises 3 separate 25-measure 
  Espanoletas.  There is an ornately decorated double bar after measure 25 
  and a more modest one after measure 50, decorated with cross-hatching.  

  The double bars separating 8-measure phrases within each 25-measure 
  Espanoleta are short in Sanz's original tablature.  They cover only the 
  middle 3 strings of Sanz's 5-string tablature staff.  Notice that at these 
  spots the beats do not add up.  

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 measure in Sanz's original tablature:
  1 26 46 66.  Last measure is 75.
