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 2 pieces: 
    Passacalles por la G, y B.  
    por el Tres, y Dos.

  The Baroque guitar "G" chord is our first position F chord.  

Fixes to the original (m=Measure; p=Place in measure; s=String):

  ^ = up strum (toward treble). 
  v = down strum (toward bass). 
  z = rest symbol. 
  ~~~~~~ = slur the notes above the wavy line.
