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:  FG7.
Title:     Passacalles de 3o. tono. Compassillo. 19 diferencias.
Composer:  Francisco Guerau.
Source:    Poema Harmonico.
           Folio 8.
Date:      1694.
Facsimile: Tecla, p30.

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

Fixes and modifications (M=measure r=rhythm s=string): 
  From m77 to the end, Guerau shows the 4-note rhythm pattern as 
  dotted-8th 32nd (32nd 32nd).  He explains that in this case, "the dot does 
  not increase the value of the 8th by half... but of the 32nds which follow."  
  (Tecla, page 85.)  The intention, then, is an 8th followed by a 16th-note 
  triplet, as notated here (after you write in the triplet signs.)  Guerau's 
  calculation is very close, but not precise. If you multiply the three 32nd 
  notes by 1.5, you get a 64th note's worth more than the intended 8th note 
  total.

Tablature elements to be added by hand:
  M77-end. Indicate triplet above each group of three beamed 16th notes.
  Arrowheads ^ indicate strums.  See m1, m33, m41, m43, m45 and m77. It is 
    worth re-drawing the arrowhead right at the top of the associated stem.
  Slurs. If only a starting point is given, slur includes all the following 
  uninterrupted notes on the same string.
    M13 r5s3-r12s3.
    M14 r6s2-r12s2.
    M15 r5s3-r9s2-r12s1.
    M16 r5s3-r9s2-r12s1.
    M21 r3s2.
    M22 r3s2.
    M23 r2s3-r5s2, r6s5-m24r4s5.
    M33 r2s4-r5s5, r6-9s1, r11-12s1.
    M34 r2s4-r5s5, r6-7s1, r8-9s1, r10-11s2, r12-13s2, r14-15s3.
    M35 r2s3-r5s4, r7-8s4, r9s4-r12s5.
    M36 r2-3s2, r4s4-r7s5, r9s3-r12s4.
    M37 r7s2-r10s3.
    M38 r3s2-r6s4, r9s1-r12s2.
    M39 r7s1.
    M40 r3s1-r6s2, r8s4.
    M61 r2s2-r8s3, r10s4-r19s5.

    M64 r1s1, r5-6s3, r7s3-r8s4, r9s3-r12s4.
    M65 r6-7s2.
    M66 r4-5s2.
    M67 r2-3s2, r7-8s4.
    M68 r4-5s3.
    M77 r2s2-r5s3, r6s3-r9s4, r10-13s1, r14s1-m78r1s2.
    M78 r2-5s2, r6s2-r9s3, r10s4-r13s5, r14s5.
    M79 r2s1-r5s2, r6s2-r9s3, r10-12s4, r14s1-m80r1s2.
    M80 r2s5, r6s3-r9s4, r10-12s1, r14s1-r16s2.
  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.

Leading measures in Guerau's original tablature:
  1 11 17 25 32 37 42 49 57 62 68 75 79. Last measure is 80.
