Méthode Pour La Guitare

The Méthode pour la Guitare is a method for the classical guitar originally written in French by guitarist and composer Fernando Sor.

The method was written with the early romantic guitar in mind (Sor mentions some 19th-century guitar-builder: J. Panormo, Schroeder of Petersburg, Alonso of Madrid, Pages and Benitez of Cadiz, Joseph and Manuel Martinez of Malaga, Rada, and Lacôte of Paris), but it is not only about instrumental technique, but also includes details about the theory of scales, harmony, sonority, composition, and above all music as an art.
