Harry, I just played the chords of the A section. Sor just plays these chords as arpeggios, so I reversed the process by way of a prelude. I often do this as it reveals the underlying harmonic movement. Glad you like it!

Wonderful! What about the "prelude" to the first one in D, did you make it up yourself or did Sor compose it? If so, where can I find it? It gave a fine introduction to the piece.

I bought the guitar back from the student I sold it to, and I am delighted to have it back as it is a superb instrument, and I really missed it.

The Bm study is usually played quite slowly - we are all used to hearing it played by Bream, Williams and countless other classical guitarists. But the tempo marking is Allegretto - quite lively. I also added in a little turn to get back to the start of the repeat section. Some will like it, some won't. C'est la vie!

Did you get back your romantic guitar or it is and old video ?
Anyway nice one. I like very much the Bm study, very different of what I've heard before (and what I play this one too..)
