The following chronological list includes souces that specifically call for lute (chitarrone, theorbo, etc.) or guitar as part of a basso continuo. Certainly, there are many other sources for which these instruments can be used, but I've limited this list to those mentioning lutes/guitars in the title page or, in some cases, the individual continuo part. A very few of these sources (such as the Peri and Caccini that begin the list), are added since accompaniment on the chitarrone is verified by historical sources for these important works. Note that a few of these sources may more properly be associated with obbligato, rather than continuo, parts, but are included here since they are not in tablature.
Some of these sources may be duplicated in the other lists, but only if they have some type of tablature (including alfabeto tablature). Treatises dealing with lute/guitar continuo are also included here. The following sources were used in compiling this list:
