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.

    y por Octavo Tono punto alto

  The Baroque guitar "I" chord is our first position, open A major chord.  

Fixes to the original (m=Measure; p=Place in measure; s=String): 
  M43p4s1 original had space but fret number was lost.  Fret 2 added here.
  M50p2s3 original measure did not have full 4 beats.  I inserted fret 0 here 
    as the starting 4er note. 
  M52p6s2 fret 8 (G nat) intended?  I left original fret 9 (G#). 
  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 10 34 48 57 71 80 100.  Last measure is 109.
