(Classical) Tremolo is a right-hand technique. It needs to be employed within a beautiful or interesting composition in order to be pleasing. The technique itself is neither here nor there; it can be pretty lifeless and very quickly super-boring without the musical qualities of a nice composition - as you no doubt are aware from beginner's exercises where you are asked to practice open-e tremolo on the 1st sting with open string bass notes, for example.
The technique itself is a fairly advanced skill for the right hand. However, an interesting composition does not require the left-hand patterns to be complicated. So, what is an easy tremolo; a tremolo for beginners?
If 'easy tremolo' requires both the right and the left hand to have easy jobs - it does not exist.
However, if 'easy' is just about the left hand (and melody), then you can pick anything simple which is still interesting - it does not have to be a specific piece. You can just cycle through 2-3 easy chords with the left hand......
It's true that the left hand has the biggest potential for difference in difficulty but some aspects of RH tremolo vary in difficulty too - tempo is one but also whether it is on 1st string as against the other strings on which it is harder to avoid glancing off physically lower strings.
It's also true that, as tremolo is an advanced technique, one would expect only advanced players to attempt it & that these would be capable of making up their own tremolo exercises and make tremolo pieces at sight from suitable pieces. This is indeed what I did decades ago.
But there's still a place for ready-made tremolo arrangements & compositions for those who want them / don't want to arrange their own / want to learn to arrange their own & want to begin on a tremolo piece that's shorter and easier than Recuerdos or one of the Barrios tremolos (for example).
This is presumably what Ahmed & others like him are looking for.
I think it should be an illustrative beginning of a set of notes in a musical piece in order to understand how the process takes place
So it is difficult when the musical pieces are long
Where they are difficult
We need to understand how the process is done in the simplest procedure
