Beginning Classical Guitar: Sor Study Op. 51, No. 1

This study is based on open strings and is a very good study for the right hand.

Use the tip of the thumb to mute any unwanted ringing bass strings. Many phrases start on an "anacrusis" (upbeat), so take care to give sufficient accent to the first beat of the bar, particularly at the start of the piece. The thumb is naturally stronger than the index finger, but the first note of the first complete bar is played with the index finger and must receive more emphasis than the preceding note.
