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.

    Passacalles por la + y K 
    por el Siete y el Ocho 
    por Tercer Tono y 4o punto alto

  The Baroque guitar "+" chord is our open E minor chord.  

Fixes, modifications and comments (M=Measure; p=Place in measure; s=String): 
  M35p1,49p1 rhythm symbol looks like half at a glance, but 4er needed to 
  make beats add up.  Many of the solid noteheads came out partially hollow 
  in this engraving, and perhaps that's what happened in these spots.  In 
  any case, rhythm made 4er here.  

  M65 Sanz ran out of room at the end.  It looks like his final chord has 
  whole note symbol.  He probably would have put a breve if he had room.  

Explanation of symbols: 
  " = trill, generally starting on upper neighbor. 
  , = mordent, main note to lower neighbor and back to the main note. 
  # = vibrato. 
  ^ = 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 19 37 50.  Last measure is 65.
