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.

  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:
  m12r5, m26r8-m27r1, m84r6, m85r1.

Leading measures in Guerau's original tablature:
  1 12 21 31 39 46 55 63 73 82. Last measure is 85.

Note: Guerau indicated the rhythm change at m38 with a large "12/8" along with 
the word "sexqa.", short for "sexquialtera". In proper modern notation, we 
would indicate triplets rather than a time signature change.
