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

Short ID:  FG11.
Title:     Passacalles de 5o. tono. Compassillo. 15 diferencias.
Composer:  Francisco Guerau.
Source:    Poema Harmonico.
           Folio 13.
Date:      1694.
Facsimile: Tecla, p35.

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

Fixes and modifications (M=measure r=rhythm 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.
    M45 r6s1-r13s4.
    M46 r6s3-r13s3.
    M47 r6s2-r13s5.
    M48 r5s1-r14s4.
  Arrowheads ^ indicate strums. See m49-m52. It's worth re-drawing the ^ 
  arrowhead right at the top of the associated stem.

  Take a moment to fill out the 16th-note beams.

Explanation of symbols: 
  " = trill, generally starting on upper neighbor. On 8th and dotted 8th 
      notes, consider a shorter, 3-note figure - main note to upper neighbor 
      and back to the main note. 
  , = mordent, main note to lower neighbor and back to the main note.

Suggested simplification (if need be): 
  _____________
  |________"0_|
  |_"5________|
  |__5_ to ___|
  |___________|
  |__3______3_|
  |___________|  or, play lower grace note instead of trill. 

Leading measures in Guerau's original tablature:
  1 9 18 27 35 43 49 58. Last measure is 60.
