I could name so many things... pieces by Francis Tarrega, Isaac Albeniz, Stanley Myers, Augustin Barrios-Mangore, Villa-Lobos... that's REAL classical guitar. But with classical guitar comes great challenges in technique and an entirely different finger-picking style than what you are working with I'm sure. Go to youtube and check out pieces by them.

But pieces that are pop-oriented would be like Dust in the Wind (that and blackbird are my typical finger warm-ups.... and Leyenda by Albeniz), Classical Gas seems to be quite popular among the rock crowd who want to be well-rounded "classical" players, Dee by Randy Rhodes is also decent. Hell, you could play Silent Lucidity by Queensryche. I also suggest playing scale patterns with your fingers... alternate between i and m (index/middle respectively) and alternate between i m a (index/middle/ring respectively) you could even throw in a thumb (p) inbetween i/m/a... this will help build dexterity and speed.... I could help give examples of real exercises and beneficial studies for your right hand if you really wanted to try some serious fingerpicking things.... but those tunes I suggested... those are all finger-picked and good, easy pieces

Wow /thread man.
But yeah I vote for Silent Lucidity, easy fingerpicking song, and a great tune too.

If you have ever dedicated yourself to the mastery of the "classical guitar" you will no doubt appreciate the inherent pleasure and inspiration that comes from playing a truly fine instrument, but have you ever thought of how recent changes in the construction of concert-quality Spanish-style guitars have opened up a whole new world of acoustic colors with which to paint your classical music.

Consider this ... take the dynamic range and power of a finely hand-crafted "Super Negra" flamenco guitar, remove the tap-plates, add a set of premium nylon strings, re-tune the soundboard braces and adjust the set-up to enhance the instrument's dynamic range, sustain, clarity, and balance, and you may arguably have one of the very best six-stringed instruments for creating and interpreting any piece of music in a classical guitarist's repertoire ... with an acoustic edge that is genuinely evocative of Southern Spain.

The photographs on this site feature a few of, what I consider to be, my "best Spanish-style guitars". Although I focus primarily on creating concert-quality instruments for flamenco guitarists, aficionados, and fine instrument collectors, I also customize the design and acoustic characteristics of my instruments to enhance their suitability for guitarists who record and perform across several musical styles, including classical, flamenco, Latin, and jazz.
