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:  FG9.
Title:     Passacalles de 4o. tono. Compassillo. 14 diferencias.
Composer:  Francisco Guerau.
Source:    Poema Harmonico.
           Folio 11.
Date:      1694.
Facsimile: Tecla, p33.

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

Fixes and modifications (M=measure r=rhythm s=string): none.

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.
    M29 r1-2s3.
    M53 r5-6s2.
    M54 r2s2.
    M56 r2-3s1, r5-6s1.
  Arrowheads ^ and v indicate strums. See m1 and m37. 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.

Suggested simplification (if your left hand is as bad as mine): 
       _____________
  M23: |________"0_|
       |_"5________|
       |__5_ to ___|
       |___________|
       |__3______3_|
       |___________|  or, play lower grace note instead of trill. 

Leading measures in Guerau's original tablature:
