This easy-to-read modern tablature should be completely faithful to Anthoine Carre's original tablature. Let me know of any errors you find. Donald Sauter.

Short ID:  AC60.
Title:     Menuet 2 (second desus)
Composer:  Anthoine Carre.
Source:    Livre de pieces de guitarre et de musique.
           Page 60. 
Date:      ca. 1690?

Tuning:    Baroque guitar (A D G B E).
Time sig:  3. 

Note:  Carre called this piece "Menuet"; I added the "2" to distinguish it 
from the first Menuet in the suite.

Fixes, modifications and comments (M=Measure; p=Place in measure; s=String): 
  None.

Tablature elements to be added by hand:
  Slurs. If only a starting point is given, slur includes all the following 
  uninterrupted notes on the same string.
    M10 p2s1.

Strums: Arrowheads ^ and v indicate strums. Open strings in strummed chords 
  were not shown in the tablature; add as many open strings as sound good. 
  Take a moment to re-draw the ^ arrowhead right at the top of the associated 
  stem.

Explanation of symbols: 
  " = trill (starting on upper neighbor). 
  , = mordent (main note to lower neighbor and back to the main note).

Octave doublings: If you are playing on a modern, single-string guitar, 
  consider adding or substituting the next octave up almost everywhere 
  you see a 4th- or 5th-string note. 

Performance style: consider playing the 8th notes inegales, that is, as dotted 
  8ths or "swing" 8ths (triplet feel).

Leading measures in Carre's original tablature:
  1 10.  Last measure is 16.
