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.  
                                                  2
  This passacalles is based on the Baroque guitar K chord (K with a small 2 
  sitting on top).  This denotes the K chord, which is our first position 
  Bb minor barre chord, moved to the 2nd position, for a B minor barre chord.  
  I notate it as "K2" here.

Fixes to the original (m=Measure; p=Place in measure; s=String): 
  M15p1 trill symbol is closer to s2, but might apply to s5. 
  M39-40 barline and fret numbers at the end of m39 and beginning of m40 
    were partly clobbered.  (The string lines are intact.)  At m39p2s2 I 
    reconstructed a 5 from a line fragment.  At m40p1 strum mark added here. 
  M60p1 no strum mark in original.  Strum mark added here. 
  M60p2 original rhythm (8th).  Changed here to explicit 16th. 
  M63-64 original had single bar line.  Changed here to double bar line.
  M64p1 original rhythm (16th).  Changed here to explicit 8th.  
  M99p1s3 broken "2" almost looks like "0".  I believe 2 is correct. 
  M119p1 original has unidentified mark within chord.
  M127-128 original shows no separating bar line.  Sanz had run out of room.  

  Note: In measure 5, I missed the strum symbol in the .PDF and .DOC files 
  for the complete Libro 3.  It is correctly shown in the tablature below. 

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. 

Leading measures in Sanz's original tablature:
  1 22 32 45 56 64 76 101.  Last measure is 128.
