Coste's Melancolie, opus 51 no. 10. purely because it's an enjoyable piece to play.

Also Carcassi's Opus 60 no. 1. I find it has a few problems for the right hand for me to work on.

Andante, Op. 27, a duet in G, by Ferdinando Carulli. My instructor handed it to me and said to learn both parts by our next lesson. It doesn't look very hard, and I found a couple of videos on Youtube in case I need help. :shock: :lol:

Cavatina, Recuerdos de la Alhambra, Julia Florida, I tend to jump around from one piece to the other and I keep finding new ones that I want to play so it's hard for me to ever finish any :(

There are two small masterpieces which in my view are excellent to learn expressive playing and sound modulation as well as coping with some technical difficulties. One is the preludio in C minor from Mangore, absolutely wonderful what you can do with this small musical jewel. The second is “Adelita” from Tarrega.

Both pieces are one page long but you can play them hundred times and each time they sound better than the previous. You can find several videos in YouTube.
