Study No.22, Op.60 by Fernando Sor

Performance and Lesson for Study No.22 in E Minor, Op.60 by Fernando Sor (1778–1839). This is from my PDF or hardcopy sheet music or tab edition for classical guitar: 25 Progressive Studies, Op.60 by Fernando Sor.

Fernando Sor’s Op.60 is one of the most famous 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 still place this study at approximately the grade 6 level depending on your tempo. There is nothing specifically difficult but at higher tempos accuracy can be a challenge. Here’s the YouTube Link for this lesson if you want to watch it there.

  1. Hi Bradford, A small point but, in his book of Sor Op60 no 22 studies, my guitar teacher thinks that in bars 5 and 29 of your edition (which I have), the second note should/maybe an E not an open G. Regards David
