Thanks so much for pointing out the broken link, which I now see resulted from me assuming the ñ character would not cause a problem. I found with the Barrios that there were bass lines with some notes sounding "transposed" due to the limitations of 6 strings that could not be rendered linearly.
Your software must dislike Spanish!
Yes, I know what you mean about the transposed sounding bass notes. In fact there's a lot of that in S L Weiss too. It's ironic that guitarists wanting to play his music as close to the original as possible / from the manuscripts who then buy & learn to play 13 string guitars in Dm tuning will replicate the odd sounding bass jumps in Weiss' music necessitated by the fact that the open basses are no good for chromatic changes. Much better in my opinion to find keys that work for 11 or 8 string guitars and place basses where it makes most musical sense.
