Did anyone say "this is the only right way of playing this"?
No, merely implied it: "must use rest stroke" (to paraphrase) certainly seems an example of this to me.
Conall, isn't that a tad squishy?

absolutely the melody should be played rest stroke. It's part of the reason for the study, I'd say.

crofty, I know that you've read all of my posts that follow. We've been over this. I'm not going to continue; it's clear that I've become persona au gratin on this thread; have at it. I'm comfortable with what I wrote.

Let me ask about playing the rests on the basses. What is the preference, dampen the bass note just before (or at the time) of playing the next treble note, or immediately after? The first gives more of a distinct, almost staccato, effect, the second a bit more legato but still the distinct dampening of the bass can be clearly heard.

"Merely implied"?? Paraphrase?? certainly seems?? That's a pretty squishy statement. If this is a reference to me, please reread my posts.

Sorry if you're upset but, as you suggested we need to reread your posts I did and then quoted the relevant one.

The rest [in the lower voice] means that you should stop the previous note at the same time as you play the upper, quarter note.

Blimey! "Squishy"?

Apologies to jscott or anyone else taking offence! I was only defending myself from being mildly questioned whether anyone was demanding rest stroke (or something).

Think I'll just go hide in my room & play some mini etude by someone my wife has never heard of. Maybe I'll be really naughty & try it with plectrum.

P.s. I do like & rate Sor, I really do - please don't eat me.
Pps Actually this etude might work for plectrum guitarists.
Ppps I'm not a plectrum guitarist & no offence to plectrum guitarists or CGs who hate plectrum.

Actually I think the only right way of playing this is on an electric with loads of wa-wa....

I believe Sor tried this in 1812 in Paris. He needed loads of overdrive too to drown out the bloody canons his pal Tchaikovsky liked to shoot...

Would Sor be a strat or a Gibson guy?

PRS I think. I gather Fernando was particularly fond of feedback loop.
