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.

Fixes and modifications (M=measure r=rhythm s=string): 
  M14r3 original showed fret 3 on s3. Moved to s1 here.

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.

    M37 r2s1-r9s3.
    M38 r2s1-r9s3.

  Arrowheads ^ indicate strums. See m1. 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.
  # = vibrato.

Suggested simplifications (if need be): 

       M45            M15

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:
  m8r3, m11r1, m28r3, m52r1, m60r1, m76r3, m95r1, m104r1.
