This is a great tango by the XX century composer Roland Dyens. 
You can find in my page (http://www.geocities.com/vienna/6619)
the sheet music and the song played by me (In MP3 format)
to make it easier to learn it. Good Luck!!
(Tablature explanation at the end)

Corrections/Additions by wim (wimiam at yahoo dot com) - November 2004

Translations from the sheet music (it's in french!):

"melodie claire"
clear melody

"comme un clin daeil"
like a wink of the eye 
(this means play it quickly, and with a 'cheeky' sound)

"accompagnement leger"
light accompaniment

"deplacer la meme position en soulevant le doigt 1"
Use the same position lifting off one finger

"soulever le barre entre les accords"
lift the barre _between_ the chords

"gliss sur 3"
slide [up] on the third string [D]

"effleurer les cordes"
not sure...

"tragique!"
tragic! =)

"moins tragique"
less tragic

"gliss lento sans perare le tempo"
slide softly without losing the tempo

"pouce pulpe (bien eteindre les basses)"
??? mute the basses with your thumb


   Corrections made:
changes are indicated with a # above the tab.
Mostly just wrong notes, etc.
the only real big ones were the last diminished chord 
in the tremolo part (it is [xx0101] NOT [xx1010]) and 
the chord in the bridge, which is [x x 10 9 7 7] and 
not [x x 10 9 8 8].

The last note is not a harmonic, which gives time to get down 
the bottom of the neck.

"deplacer la meme position en soulevant le doigt 1"
means 'Use the same position lifting off one finger'
this is when you slide down the neck during the 
tremolo-diminished part.  You gliss on the top three
strings, and lift up finger 1 because it squeaks on 
the winding and/or slows you down

use upstroke with the thumb on the diminished chords

      p  Pizz-------/
      ^

  Pizz is Pizzicatto: 
palm mute at the bridge and pluck the notes with 
p (the thumb).  play these short and loud.

  A.H. is artificial harmonic:
fret the first note with the left hand, point the second note
with i (index) and pluck the string with a.

"soulever le barre entre les accords"
means 'lift the barre _between_ the chords'
lifting the bar during the rasgueado part means you can 
strum only the three strings easily - do not lift it off
the strings, just lift the frets, so the that the rest of 
the unwanted notes in the chord are muted

Note:
 The x's is a hit on the body of the guitar with right
 hand ring finger (just below the bridge)

the score is as tabbed, but i play the B notes indicated # as

"tragique!" : tragic! =)
i substitute the [xx333x] chord with a big [xx2330] and 
use a downstroke with 'a' for that 'tragique' tone..

"pouce pulpe (bien eteindre les basses)"
???
I think it means to mute the basses with your thumb.
i.e. stop the E string - best way is to damp with the 
back of the thumb of right hand

                     on     off                            Harmonic

-There are certain harp harmonics throughout the piece, shown
 like this:
                      |-----------|
                      |--3<15>----|
                      |-----------|
                      |-----------|
                      |-----------|
                      |-----------|

 This harmonics are done by pressing the note at the fret number
 shown BEFORE the parenthesis, resting your right hand index
 finger over the fret shown in the parenthesis, and playing the
 string with the right hand's middle or ring finger (The ring
 finger works better for me) 

-Remember that a "C" followed by a number indicates a bar in that 
fret.
