Hello,

James Tyler's "a guide to playing the baroque guitar" (Indiana University Press) is a must-have (and not too hard to find).

There are also tons of resources on the early guitar forum : http://earlyguitar.ning.com/

Hope this helps,
Regards,
Gilles

The Guitar and its Music - from the Renaissance to the Classical Era by James Tyler and Paul Sparks; Oxford University Press, 2002. This book surveys the history and development of the guitar between approx 1550 and 1750.

I don't know where you are from DLMJ-1234.
But if you familiar with scandinavian languages try to find:
Fritz Pedersen: Barokguitaren. (published 1984)
It is very comprehensive: 2 volumes and 180 pages in each.
It is written in danish.
Vesa Kuokkanen

Antonio Marin nr. 813 1995 (Bouchet)
Vesa Kuokkanen 2016
