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

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 the strummed chords, add as many open strings as sound good.  Or, try 
  the ready-to-go version for modern guitar.  

  The Baroque guitar "C" chord is our 2nd position, open D major chord.

    Passacalles por la C
    por Cruçado
    y por quinto Tono punto alto

Fixes to the original (m=Measure; p=Place in measure; s=String): 
  M22p3 original had no strum mark.  Up-strum added here.
  M13p3 interesting that Sanz shows open strings in a strummed chord.  Does 
    that mean to stop at string 3?  
  Original has breve (equals 2 whole notes) for the final chord.  


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). 
  . = do not play this string in a strum. 
  z = rest symbol. 
  ~~~~~~ = slur the notes above the wavy line. 

Leading measures in Sanz's original tablature:
  1 18 33 42 50 57 65 72.  Last measure is 79.
