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:  FG31.
Title:     Jacaras. 39 diferencias.
Composer:  Francisco Guerau.
Source:    Poema Harmonico.
           Folio 35.
Date:      1694.
Facsimile: Tecla, p57.

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

Fixes and modifications (M=measure r=rhythm s=string): 
  M83 original rhythm was dotted-4er 8th (8th) 4er.
  M105 original showed a single slur covering 8 notes, but Jeffery says this 
    was changed to 2 shorter slurs in later editions. I assume the 2 slurs 
    are connected, as in the surrounding measures.
  M130-131 were separated by a double bar. 

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.
    M79 r4s4.
    M80 r4-6s1.
    M81 r3-5s1.
    M82 r1-3s5.
    M104 r2-5s2-r9s2.
    M105 r2s5-r5s4-r9s5.
    M106 r1-3s1-r8s1, r10-12s2.
    M107 r1s2-r6s2-r12s2.
    M108 r1s2-r6s2-r12s4.
    M109 r1s2-r12s1.
    M110 r2s5-r7s4-r12s2.
    M119 r2s1-r5s2.
    M120 r1s4-r4s5, r6s2-r9s3.
    M121 r2s3-r5s4.
    M122 r1s4-r4s5.
    M148 r1s4.
  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.

Octave doublings: To connect a musical line on the modern guitar, or fill out 
  the texture, consider adding the octave above the bass. For example, see:
  m53r1, m123r1, m125r1.

Leading measures in Guerau's original tablature:
  1 13 23 34 44 58 70 80 91 104 110 119 128 139 152. Last measure is 156.
