Leçon Op.31, No.6 by Fernando Sor (1778-1839). This is an excellent arpeggio study with a melody in the top voice. It is fairly straight forward in terms of chord shapes and fingering, however, it is active and morphing constantly so requires some extra practice and knowledge of what’s coming next. I give some tips about getting the shapes together and how the melody sneaks its way across and through the harmonies. Take it slow and give it time.
