Why not using an internet search? There seem to be many shops.
On the other side I searched for "Te vas milonga Fleury" and some minutes later I had both pdfs on my computer. Free, but therefore with a bad pdf quality.

Fleury is one of those players whose music is inexplicably neglected. True, his music is less "classical" in concept and construction than Agustin Barrios or Antonio Lauro, but it is very nice stuff. There are a few recordings of his music available.

Carlos Martinez has two recordings of Fleury's music and one of Atahualpa Yupanquis' (another neglected composer) which are excellent. You can also find some of his videos on you tube.

I acquired the complete works of Abel Fleury, ed. By Roberto Lara. In reading the last variation of "Pago Largo" (variaciones sobre 'La Huella') I noticed an "A" in capital letters and in parentheses at the very beginning of the variation. In the one recording I've heard of this piece, by the Mexican guitarist Gerardo Tamez, he plays it with what sounds like nails going across the wound part of the basses for a subtle scraping effect.

Does anyone know 1) if this (A) could possibly stand for an alternative technique, such as the one I just described, or 2) whether Fleury, used this particular technique with any consistency in his playing?

I haven't heard Carlos Martinez' recordings, but Roberto Lara's "Argentina: The Guitar of the Pampas," featuring Fleury's compositions, is one of my favorite discs. I believe pretty much all the pieces are in the two editions Aryeh referenced.

Fleury PDFs can be found by searching. I posted a link but it wasn't allowed.
He is recent discovery for me too and I have bought Robert Lara and Martinez CDs.
Beautiful - and for me an introduction to other Argentinian music, of which I knew little.
