I recommend simple pieces for two and/or three guitars by Joseph Kueffner. Formerly published by Schott. I use it in teaching with students with minimal 4 to 6 months of experience in guitar playing. I buy it from time to time antiquarian for my students.

The Kueffner-duos are also linked on the delcamp sheetmusic page for Joseph Küffner.
Me and my duopartner Edith Lehner are recording a lot of student repertoire for two guitars on youtube. If a free edition is available we also always link to the score.
Here is a playlist with the Küffner-duos (currently at number 44)
as well as a lot of easy pieces by Giuliani, Carulli, Neuland.
If you want to play more modern music: There is a very nice collection by Claude Gagnon - 19 Duos faciles - with an easy first guitar accompanied by a slightly more difficult second guitar. You can listen to the complete duos on my channel. I am not permitted (due to copyright) to link here directly, but you can search for 'saitenspuren - Gagnon'

hope that gives you some suggestions, best wishes,

norbert
Karl Schandl - Wiener Modell - 1927
Richard Jacob (Weißgerber) Nr. 32.8./4 - 1935
Michael Gee - Hauser style no.2 - 1990

"Bach at the Beginning: Six Pieces from the Anna Magdalena Notebook by J. S. Bach arranged as first year guitar duets" by John W. Duarte. A Novello publication.

From the foreward: "Both guitar parts are set in close to the nut position, i.e. using open strings freely. The fingerings are designed to fall easily under the hands of players who have had about one year of good tuition, rather than for their artistic finesse, and the rhythms are simple, with few syncopations...."
