...There is of course Reich's Electric Counterpoint, ...
Speaking of Reich, I've been tempted to work-up a guitar duet of "Clapping Music". It could be a bit less minimalistic, if the interval was changed after each cycle. Another idea is to have the two guitars just slightly "out of tune" to each other (like gamelan bells), to give a kind of "shimmer" to what would otherwise just be unison playing.
There's also another Reich piece "Music for Pieces of Wood, for 5 pairs of tuned claves". One clave just plays a fixed "metronome beat", so that could be any kind of a click track, then the other four lines could be played on any four strings. Would be technically minimalistic, but a real work-out for chord playing (could also be a duet with each playing double-stops -- or even a quartet). You could also add a bit of tonal variation by fretting a different chord for the different repetitions.
