It depends on how skilled you are. As a beginner, I would recommend finding a good teacher, for if you are a begginer, teaching yourself can develop some nasty habits. Beethoven and Mozart do have transcriptions for guitar, yet they aren't nearly as popular as Segovia's Bach transcriptions. I HIGHLY recommend looking up Fernando Sor, the spanish composer.

This is a very good piece to learn for people who know a litle bit about playing guitar, and are good with chords:

A teacher with Classical music is almost a must-have. There aren't nearly as many self-taught classical guitarists, in comparison. Here's an intermediate piece:

The Fernando Sor studies are really your best choice. I'm assuming you're fairly new to Classical guitar. The Sor studies contain techniques which you will learn eventually in Classical guitar.

Well, for 3 years, I'm going to assume you do not have bad habits (playing with your right hand resting on the guitar, left hand resting on the neck, having a lot of angle when you play, etc).

I'm learning this piece, and I haven't been playing that long:

Villa-Lobos' Etude No. 1 is really good to learn:

Although the right hand fingering must go in this order:
PIPIPMIAMAIMPIPI

Barrios has many great tunes. I can't find any good interpretations of "Las Abejas" on the web, but here is one anyways:

Also, Barrios wrote a piece titles "La Catedral" which I believe is the greatest music written specifically for the guitar.

Barrios is a great composer for advanced players.

Oh, thank you. I will post as soon as me and my sister get this arguement we've had for while sorted out. If you do happen to watch any, expect a few pieces written by myself.

Look up some of Francisco Tarrega's work, or maybe as Madcap said some Fernando Sor. Right now I'm learning a song called La Gatica by Antonio Lauro and its brilliant

Concierto de Aranjuez - Rodrigo, an awesome classical guitar piece, that can be played without a full orchestra as long as you play the orchestral melody on guitar during the orchestral melody sections.

I wonder what the "Acoustic & Classical" is for...

Could it be the place to discuss classical guitar music?

Why, yes, it could!
