Tuning:    Baroque guitar (A D G B E).
Time sig:  not shown; surely C.

Fixes, modifications, comments (M=Measure; p=Place in measure; s=String): 
  None.

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. 

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.
