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.  

  Full text across the top of the page, on one line, serving two pieces: 
    Passacalles por la E, y D.  
    por el Cinco, y Seis
    y por Primero y Quarto Tono 

  The Baroque guitar "E" chord is our first position D minor chord.  

Fixes to the original (m=Measure; p=Place in measure; s=String): 
  M13p1s1 original showed mordent, which is hardly playable.  Ornament 
    eliminated here.  
  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). 
  z = rest symbol. 
  ~~~~~~ = slur the notes above the wavy line. 

Leading measures in Sanz's original tablature:
  1 18 31 44.  Last measure is 50.
