You might want to check out the music by the Danish Guitarist/Composer Per-Olov Kindgren (http://www.per-olovkindgren.com/) . I think he has some very beautiful short pieces which are very accessible almost all are on his uTube Channel.

A book I read from that may fit the bill for this post is, "30 Easy Spanish Guitar Solos", arranged by Mark Phillips. It has several "gentle, beautiful pieces". It also has some simplified arrangements of more advanced "gentle, beautiful" pieces. check it out.

I think Tarrega - "Study in E minor" may fit what you're looking for, it has a lot of room for finding the right touch/emotion like you said. Very simple too.

Very simple too.... that is relative. It is a grade 5 piece in Australia so not considered that easy!

You're welcome and its still one of my favorite pieces to play because I don't have to concentrate or anticipate a difficult part coming up. The whole piece is just easy and oh so beautiful.

By the way, I checked the difference between my link from my post of 8 yrs ago and your corrected link and the only difference is my link had the word "Main" capitalized and your link had "main" ( no capital "M") ie http://zohourian.com/Main/Download.htm doesn't work but http://zohourian.com/main/Download.htm does.... :?: :?: :?: I always thought url addresses were insensitive to capitals but apparently not. Weird.

Enjoy playing it. I've never run across anything else that even comes close to meeting the dictate of this thread.

One of my favorite pieces to play, which I would call gentle and beautiful, is Matthew McAllister's, "Daniel's Tune."

Check out "Cantilena" by Hilary Field. It's in the Our Scores forum.
