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:
  m32r9, m52r4.

Leading measures in Guerau's original tablature:
  1 11 20 29 38 46. Last measure is 52.

WARNING: As always, the original tablature shows rhythm symbols only where the 
rhythm value changes. The rhythm symbols by themselves do not generally tell 
us whether a measure is in 3/4 or 6/8.  All beaming of notes in this modern 
tablature is editorial. Let me know where the beaming is incorrect.
