Chronological List of Tablatures from the 1600's

The following chronological list includes existing plucked-string tablatures from 1600-1699, as well as sources known to have existed that are now lost. Note that the list contains primarily music in some form of lute or guitar tablature, not music in staff notation that might possibly have been played on the lute or other plucked string instrument. Therefore, sources that may call for continuo with plucked string are also excluded, unless they contain actual tablature of some sort. Continuo sources with plucked string are listed separately.

The names of places have been given their modern English equivalent, for consistency, and the modern political names of the countries in which these cities are located have been added in brackets. The following sources were used in compiling this list:
