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.  

  Full text across the top of the page, on one line, serving two pieces: 

    Passacalles por la + y K2
    por el Siete y el Ocho 
    por Tercer Tono y 4o punto alto

  Within the page, this piece is identified as "Por el Ocho y K2".

Fixes to the original (m=Measure; p=Place in measure; s=String): 
  M17p3 original showed no strum mark.  I supplied an up-strum here.  
  M22p4s1 original showed no fret number. I supplied fret 5 here. 
  M37p3 original showed up-strum mark.  I removed the strum here. 
  M38p3 no strum mark shown in the original, in case you were wondering. 
  M55p1 original has strum mark.  If intended, you might expect strums at the 
    same spot in the following measures.  I left everything as in the original.  
  M59 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 32 48.  Last measure is 59.
