Sor's Complete Studies, Lessons and Exercises for guitar edited by Brian Jeffery and published by Tecla Editions contains all Sor’s famous studies, lessons, and exercises for guitar complete in one book (opus numbers 6, 29, 31, 35, 44, and 60, complete), at a low price specially for students. Every piece is now newly edited by Brian Jeffery directly from the original editions. With Sor's own detailed comments on several of the pieces, and with only Sor's fingering, no modern fingering. 140 pages. It includes all the well-known twenty studies which Andrés Segovia edited (see table of concordance with Segovia's "Twenty studies"), and all the studies, lessons, and exercises by Sor which are now prescribed by the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music in their current guitar syllabus.

"It is to Jeffery’s eternal credit that he has produced a publication which maintains the highest editorial standards and breaks some new ground ... it is without hesitation that I recommend this latest offering from a first-rate specialist publisher" (Classical Guitar). "This is a very fine book" (Soundboard).
Jamie Akers has just placed on Youtube a series of videos in which he performs studies by Sor, Giuliani, and Carcassi.
Patrik Kleemola has made videos of all 24 of the 24 very easy exercises op. 35 of Sor, on Youtube playing a copy of an early guitar. Very eloquent.
