I recently came across some things by Nicolo Paganini (sp?), a classical violinist and I've thoroughly enjoyed challenging myself by learning some parts of his pieces. Of course, some are way above my skill level.

Can anyone suggest more music like this that will give me a challenge?

Well naturally, I recommend Paganini. Even if you play one of his caprices twice as slow, it's still an accomplishment. Try some Mozart, Vivaldi, Bach, and Chopin. Some of that is Piano based music, but listen to it, and get a feel for classical music in genaral, it's good stuff.

There's a video called "Guitars from Mars". It's by Paul Gilbert. He explains classical pieces played on electric guitar and gives lots of examples.

not sure if its classical, its more flamenco but anyways, listen to steve stevens, hes the guitarist from billy idol, hes amazing, listen to his solo albums like flamenco a go go and memory crash, very good pieces.

Thank you very much one vision, and I have to say that I've always found the harmonic minor scale to be my favorite as well.
