Full Lesson on Fernando Sor Guitar Moderato (op.35, no.2)

Sor moderato 35-2 thumbnail

The Fernando Sor guitar studies have a been a mainstay of classical guitars for centuries.  And with good reason.

As is the norm, I take this little piece and dig into many of the nuances and issues we find in it.  We talk chords, phrasing, dynamics, and a ton of other topics.

Have fun!

    Another great piece for us beginners!
    Almost got the A section nailed, just need to master the a m finger combo in measure 3, and make fluid the LH transition to fret E+C at the start of measure 4.
    I find it easier to use LH finger 2 for the B at start of measure 3 rather than finger 1 given in the fingering plan…. and I don’t see Allen using finger 1 either, if I’m seeing the video right. Is that a big deal?
    The score shows a repeated i finger at end of measure 6 & start of measure 7, but it plays just fine for my uneducated fingers.

    Could it be that Sor put in the pull-offs as an easier way for beginners like me to play sixteenth notes?

    Anyway, thanks again Allen for another super lesson, its really appreciated.
    On to the B section in another couple of days…..
