My first tremolo peice was Recuerdo del Alhambra 40 years ago. It was one of the pieces I heard for classical guitar in my youth and I was fascinated.
Years ago I played a very nice and impressive piece from Eduardo Sainz Del La Maza: Campangnas del Alba. Very nice also.

Carcassi op 60 no 7.

Does anyone else think that the video at the link posted above has incorrect tremolo? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smAD5MuZEV8
This sounds like short bursts of quick picking in between beats, instead of equal note spacing. I ask because I struggle with my tremolo sounding like this when I get go over about 120 BPM.

Yes, if you slow that video down in youtube to 50% speed you can hear more clearly that it is not time-even or a pami - more like p-mi--p-mi-- something is happening with the a stroke so it blends in with the m I think. Tremolo is hard, no question about it.
