Lately Ive been playing a lot of what you would consider as "rock guitar"
My teacher has me playing Nirvana, Sabbath etc.

But I want to go classical to improve my playing/picking/fingering

The closest ive gotten to Classical is Bob Dylans Knockin' on Heavens door and The Troggs Wild Thing on an acoustic.

A friend of mine recommended me some songs such as Green Sleeves and Hungarian Dance (or something along those lines)

But can you guys help me out with Classical guitar? Maybe recommend some songs or direct me to some lessons?

Thanks for your time

Capriche Arabe by franciscoTarrega is really cool. first real classical song i learned, not realy hard.

Oops, If its finger picking you wanna practice/improve then I'd say Taregga.

Segovia may be a bit too hard but hey, if you are an advanced player then go for it.

What's the big deal with Gibsons, anyway?
I've heard loads of Gibsons being played before
and they don't sound any more special than
any other guitar.

If you know how to read music: http://www.eythorsson.com/music/1007.pdf
This is pretty much standard for learning classical guitar. I'd start with the second piece of music and come back to the first later. If all of that music looks intimidating then just learn a few of the pieces (each one is only a page long). I recently picked up the classical, so we're kind of in the same boat. Best of luck to you!

The best classical guitar tab site I've ever found is classtab.org.
Some recommendations from that site:
J.S. Bach - Minuet in G
J.S. Bach - Bourree: Lute Suite No. 1 in Em
Edvard Grieg - Morning Mood
Tchaikovsky - Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy
Anonymous/Traditional - Greensleeves
Anonymous/Traditional - Romanza

Etc., etc., etc.
As you can see, some of the tabs on there are even conveniently marked as [Easy], so you can see which ones might be in your "league" of classical guitar.
Whatever composer you're eager to learn from, that site probably has it.
Glad to help out a fellow classical guitarist!
