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): 
  None.

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: 
  M6,8. Sanz uses the campanelas (cross-string) effect here.  Obtaining 
  a similar effect on the modern guitar requires big changes to the original 
  fingerings.  

Leading measures in Sanz's original tablature:
  1 14.  Last measure is 15.
