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): 
  M45p3s3 original shows a squiggle that looks most like a "5".  I changed 
  it to a "0" here.  (Compare with m51.)  Perhaps Sanz was considering a "5" 
  on string 4.

  M54 original shows a bar line after place 1.  Bar line was ignored here.  

  M76-80,83.  Sanz uses alfabeto for the chords in these measures.  All other 
  chords he spells out explicitly.

  M84p2.  I left the impossible chord as given in Sanz's original tablature.  
  See my treatment in the version for modern guitar.

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. 

Modern guitar version: 
  M75-82. Sanz uses the campanelas (cross-string) effect here.  Obtaining 
  a similar effect on the modern guitar requires big changes to the original 
  fingerings.  Ideally, every note should be played on a different string 
  from its neighbors.  I added slur symbols to show notes which Sanz placed 
  on the same string and are not part of the campanelas effect.  

  M84 original has a tough chord followed by an impossible one.  My solution 
  was to lop off the bass notes. 

Leading measures in Sanz's original tablature:
  1 19 35 51 68 79 92 115.  Last measure is 127.

Thanks to Roberto Neri for his proofreading help.
