    Continuo Tutorial by Terry Dwyer

    Terry Dwyer did another excellent tutorial, this time on "Realising a Continuo part".


    "Continuo" is short for “basso continuo” or “continuous bass”. It is the foundation of Baroque concerted music (Terry points out there are similarities with jazz improvisation, which assumes a common harmonic framework to work against).

    Terry discusses Figured Bass, The Continuo Code, Inflections, Stylistic considerations and gives various examples

    Thanks Tery for taking the time and trouble to write this tutorial whic is sure to be a help to many GPO users. And thanks also to Bill Pearson for his useful suggestions.

    Thanks for another wonderful tutorial Terry. I'll have to download it tonight and turn it into a PDF for viewing at leisure.

    Thank you for this. This is clearest explanation of continuo realization I've ever read...and I've read a few.

    Oh, and I really do like your use of graphics to illustrate this, particularly in the "Inflections" section.
