www.guitarburst.com

This site is GREAT!...gives you information on thousands of scores/pieces and tells you the difficulty level, publisher, notes on playing and fingering etc. and it's free. Great resource for guitar students and teachers... doesn't actually provide the music but does help eliminate the trial and error method of finding music you can play.

Nice. I only wish it could be extensible like wikipedia and with links to scores and recordings and reviews. Can you imagine a living database of all classical guitar music?

It's a very nice website for sure, and a valuable tool, yet it doesnt seem inclusive. I found no mention of certain pieces, and the criticisms... I had to view them with a grain of salt, especially when compared with transcriptions which the compiler didn't include for whatever reason.

I chose to look past the subjective criticism, which is obviously a huge part of classical guitar study, and I believe this is important when studying guitar; to find ones own voice in the notes, rather than imitating what others play.

And also a grading system is irrelevant to me. Play guitar well and make beautiful music, regardless of difficulty.

But it certainly is a great value in referencing and comparing different versions of pieces, even when they aren't all included.
