I posted this in the chat thread but nobody commented. Judging by the speed of this section of the forum, I doubt anybody will comment on this, either. I can try, though.

I'd call myself a beginner - intermediate classical guitarist and I'm looking for some songs to play in various fingerstyle genres. Classical, folk, flamenco, whatever you've got for me. For the record, I'm slowly learning this:


I tackled Minuet by JS Bach in a day and I'm working on perfecting Bourree.

I recently performed these for a university audition and I passed, you you could say I can play them pretty well:


Any suggestions around those skill levels would be great. I'd be open to learning some early 1900's folk/blues style stuff, too. I tried to learn Freight Train by Elizabeth Cotton but there was on technique I couldn't get my head around so I gave up..

I found these a few hours after posting in the chat thread and got them down pretty easily. Obviously it takes a while to perfect anything, and I haven't exactly had a while yet so they're still sloppy, and not memorised at all, but I got the technique down pretty quick.


Don't know why I felt the need to mention that, but I suppose it could be used as another reference to gauge my skill level.
Senhorinha by Guinga, its only a grade 5/6 standard piece, but its relaxing and mellow to play
Haha no way - Im currently working on the very same tune. Its my first ever classical piece though (currently tackling the B section and it is a bitch), but Im hoping to get more into the genre, and fingerstyle in general so this thread is relevant to my interests.
But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes
that'll cut you to ribbons, sometimes
and all you can do is just wait by the moon
and bleed if it's what she says you ought to do
