Glad you like 'em - I had lessons with a flamenco guitarist for a while and thus became comfortable with the spanish tab early-on -
though I'm glad it was a couple of years after
I'd started learning classical + regular notation. From learning spanish tab it was
no leap, years later, to feel happy reading french tab (which seems to be the most useful for the modern lute player) but I find
it much easier to write out (and read from) spanish rather than french tab - letters seem much more clumsy to set on the lines,
specially when using normal music manuscript paper (lute manuscript seems to have wider-spaced lines), and spanish tab is the
rather more modern universal for guitar players...
I choose not to play direct from italian tab - too confusing for the already-familiar systems
I think reading tablature is a must for those interested in lute/vihuela repertoire, mayhap my cows will encourage you to start
playing from it
