Fernando Sor's "Grand Solo" Op. 14 - Free Music, Tab and Sheet Music

Fernando Sor (1778-1839) was one of the greatest guitarists from the Classical era. During his lifetime the guitar experienced its first "Golden Age", and there was a proflieration of high quality composers for the instrument. One of Sor's most popular pieces is his "Grand Solo" Opus 14. Here is a video of Milos Janjic playing this piece. I had never heard of Janjic before watching this video, but this recording is one of the best performances of the piece that I have ever heard.
