Fernando Sor’s Op.60 is one of the most famous of all etude collections in the classical guitar repertoire. Each study covers a different pedagogical concept but the primary goal of the collection as a whole is the ability to play legato across various textures. I have kept Sor’s left hand fingering concepts but updated and modernized some to maximize legato phrasing. There is no right hand fingering in the original and therefore has been omitted here for a clean and flexible score. However, a thorough technique routine of scales and arpeggios should be more than enough to accomplish these studies. Some right hand concepts are explored in the video lessons.

  1. Hi prof. Werner, what type of nylon string do you use and how do you amplify your classical guitar sound?
