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: 
    Passacalles por la O 
    por el Una bemolado  
    y por Segundo Tono

  The Baroque guitar "O" chord is our first position, open G minor chord.  

Fixes to the original (m=Measure; p=Place in measure; s=String): 
  M5p1 no strum shown in original.  Up-strum added here. 
  M36p1 tiny bump shown where mark for strum expected.  Up-strum added here. 
  M74p1s1 original shows mordent on open string.  Mordent retained here. 
  M97p4s4 was mordent intended?  I left original vibrato. 

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 19 34 51 64 77 95 105.  Last measure is 111.
