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:  FG27.
Title:     Passacalles de 7o. tono punto alto. Compassillo. 14 diferencias.
Composer:  Francisco Guerau.
Source:    Poema Harmonico.
           Folio 31.
Date:      1694.
Facsimile: Tecla, p53.

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

Fixes and modifications (M=measure r=rhythm s=string): 
  It would seem that Guerau intended a strum at M33r1. I didn't add it.

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.
    M9 r1s3-r8s2, r9s5-r16s4.
    M10 r1s4, r5s3, r9s2-r13s1.
    M11 r1s4, r5s3, r9s2, r13s1.
    M12 r1s3-r6s3, r8-9s4-r14s4.
    M13 r2s3-r4s2, r6s2, r10s2-r12s1, r14s2.
    M14 r2s2, r6s3-r8s2, r10s2-r12s1, r14s2.
    M15 r2s1, r6s1, r10s1, r14s2-r16s1.
    M16 r2s3-r4s2, r6s2, r10s1, r14s2.
    M17 r2s2, r7s1.
    M18 r2s2, r7s1.
    M19 r2s2, r5s1, r8s1, r11s2.
    M20 r2-3s4, r5s4, r8-9s2, r11-12s3.
    M32 r6s1-r10s2, r12s2-r14s3.
    M53 r2s1-r6s2, r8s2-r12s2.
    M54 r2s2-r6s3, r8-9s4.
    M55 r2s1-r6s2, r8s2-r12s2.
    M56 r2-3s2, r2s3-r6s4, r8s5.
  Arrowheads ^ indicate strums. See m21, m29, m37, m41, m45, m53 and m55. It's
  worth re-drawing the ^ arrowhead right at the top of the associated stem, 
  just under the beam if a beam is present.    

  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.

Leading measures in Guerau's original tablature:
  1 10 14 20 25 31 36 44 52. Last measure is 56.

Note: Guerau indicates the new time signature at m33 with the word 
"Sexquialtera". In his text, he implies that he left out the 12/8 time 
signature by mistake. In proper modern notation, we would indicate triplets 
rather than a time signature change, anyway.
