I know this topic is a little old, but this is brilliant. So many people say they "figure it out," me, too, but I'd love to hear more about the reasons behind good fingerings so I can "figure it out" a lot faster. I sometimes find it hard to make progress on a piece just because I can't decide on the best fingering (for the fretting hand) and keep changing.
Just saw that you are in Mexico. At the risk of repeating myself, Amayo's Metodología de estudio para la ejecución e interpretacíon de la guitarra clásica is the only book I have seen that discusses a systematic methodology for left-hand fingering. I recommend this book unhesitatingly, because it is freely available on the internet and discusses many issues in detail (left-hand fingering, interpretation, phrasing) that every guitarist needs to know and that I have not seen discussed elsewhere. And I am assuming that the fact that it is written in Spanish will not deter you.
