Opus 60 No. 5 – Fernando Sor

Last updated on February 8th, 2024


Opus 60, No. 5 was written by Spanish guitarist and composer, Fernando Sor. This is the fifth of a 25 piece study by Sor.

This is a simple yet musical piece recommended for beginner level guitarists looking to develop their fingerpicking technique.

Some minor edits have been made to the original arrangement for ease of playing. The numbers next to some notes on the top staff indicate which fingers to use on the fretting hand. You can review this post to help you learn how to finger pick on guitar. 

One of the things Sor mentions for the first pieces is to be careful to not lift up a fretted finger until it needs to be used somewhere else.

To recap the form of the song, repeat measures 1 through 8, 9 through 16, 17 through 24, 25 through 40, then go back to the beginning until measure 16 which has the sign “Fine”. If needed, see this guide on understanding music symbols.
