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

Fixes, modifications, comments (M=Measure; p=Place in measure; s=String): 
  M8p1s4, m12p2s5.  Original tablature has a little tick mark going up from 
  the line.  They look intentional, but if so, I don't know what they mean.

Tablature elements to be added by hand:
  None.
  You might want to neaten the appearance of the arrowheads. 

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

Strums: Arrowheads ^ and v indicate strums. Open strings in strummed chords 
  were not shown in the tablature; add as many open strings as sound good. 

Octave doublings: If you play the Baroque guitar tablature on a modern guitar, 
  consider adding or substituting the octave above notes played on the 3rd, 
  4th and 5th strings. 

Modern guitar version: 
  M12,26.  I added an octave note to the opening chord.  This made the 
  original mordent very difficult to play, so I substituted vibrato for the 
  mordent.  

  . = do not play this string in a strummed chord.  

Leading measures in Sanz's original tablature:
  1 13 24 37.  Last measure is 43.
