Study No.23, Op.60 by Fernando Sor

Performance and Lesson for Study No.23 in A Major, 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 7 level depending on your tempo. There is nothing specifically difficult but the initial reading and learning can be a challenge. Here’s the YouTube Link for this lesson if you want to watch it there.

  1. Hi Brad
    You mention “depending on your tempo” a lot in your lessons ,and rightly so ,it makes huge difference , I find getting to 75 to 80 percent of required tempo straight forward but that last bit for me is just excruciating ,this is always the case , I watch you in amazement churning out piece after piece , reading it and playing at fast tempo s , such envy for your skill and I bust mt ass every day trying to improve
