Conceived in particular for lutenists and guitarists, but equally suitable for other instrumentalists interested in playing continuo such as keyboard players and harpists, this Rule for learning the basso continuo aims at providing a visual scheme in the form of a handbook able to set out in a complete way the chords of the eighteenth-century harmonic system in relation to the respective degrees of the major and minor scale.
It does not satisfy the need to acquire the correct connections between the chords. For this, it is necessary to refer to the plentiful Baroque treatises on the subject.
