No.1 Lesson Link.

Andante, Op.31, No.1 by Fernando Sor (1778-1839). This a nice Sor Study in C major with a clear melody. I mainly discuss right hand fingering in this lesson as the work is otherwise straight forward. As always though, play the melody on its own to get the phrasing and shaping at a high quality before adding everything else.
