Manuscript means handwritten, understood in context to mean handwritten, preferably autographed final draft. Only one of those I know about is the originally unpublished Fantaisie owned by Pepe Romero and issued by Tuscany Publications.
First or early editions may or may not be of help but they are the closest we can get to these composers.
Its a surprise when you think how many manuscripts survive from over a century earlier.
Isn't it a little different when the composer himself is the publisher? I mean, can we not assume that there are no editorial changes other than those made by the composer himself? And by the way, although some mistakes may creep in with the publishing process, manuscripts also have plenty of mistakes, some of which are probably corrected during the publishing process. Again, I am speaking in a case where the composer is the publisher.

Both Sor and Tárrega had problems with typesetters and editors making changes. In fact, in my own experience things can change at the last moment without your knowledge, even today. Read Sor's biography (Brian Jefferey, Tecla Editions) for an insight into the publishing of his works. That said, generally the first edition is the closest to the composer's intentions, and I try never to look at anything edited after the composer's death.

Nicely played, Rob, a pleasure to hear. I'm now learning Sor's Opus 60 #21 and I look forward to start the #22 within a couple of weeks. I'll have, then, the benefit of having this video of your's (back to B&W? :D) as a reference. Ah, and I was sad to know that you had to sell your Ambridge... :(. A sad moment, I'm sure. Nevertheless, this new guitar also sounds quite well.

Rob

What a wonderful piece. Every time I hear and see you do a Sor's piece, I think that is my next one to work on. You make them look easy and playable and it is only after trying to play them musically do I realize just how excellent a player you are.

Thanks for sharing your talent here.

Ah, that's nice, Doug. Many thanks. Keep working at Sor - he has taught me a lot.

Cheers, Rick. No, I had to sell my beautiful Ambridge guitar for financial reasons, and thought it might take a while before I was happy with anything else. Not that I'm 100% happy with this guitar, but it will do until something more suitable comes along. It's not the guitar's fault, it's just not designed with my technique in mind.
Oh, no, how could you have sold the Ambridge? That was such a wonderful sounding guitar! Such a shame that you had to part with it.

Charming... another piece going on my ever-faster-growing-than-shrinking to-do list :-)
