List every one you know of, I need things to play. Don’t give me shitty pop rock tabs either. I want real acoustic guitar music to learn, preferrably classical style, but anything will do. Listy!
I’d suggest Mason Williams’ Classical Gas and Isaac Albeniz’s (or maybe it was Segovia who converted it from piano to guitar) Leyenda.
I can reccomend A Past and Future Secret and The Bard’s Song, by Blind Guardian.
Not exactly solo(moreso with the former), but still excellent listens.
How much is that like Clapton’s Classical Gas (which would be a little overwhelming for the average guitarist)?
Well the one 984 sent me isn’t just guitar. The one version I heard that was, didn’t actually sound too difficult. But yeah suggest more songggs.
My Suggestions (as well as songs I can play parts of)
Led Zeppelin - Battle of Evermore (which also has mandolin, but those parts can
be converted to acoustic)
The Song Remains The Same - Led Zeppelin
Good-Bye, Blue Sky - Pink Floyd
Behind Blue Eyes - The Who
No clue. Never heard Clapton’s. And yeah, sorry Hades. Forgot about all the horns and stuff.
You should hear Eric Clapton’s; it’s quite a feat for anyone to play it (or so I’ve been told - I don’t play the guitar). I could send it to you.
Got to hear Clapton’s. Yeah, it’s basically the same Classical Gas but minus the horns and shit.

If you have a classical guitar, there are some seriously bad ass acoustic spanish guitar pieces that you can learn. Like, if you can get then down, go play on the street or something and just jam - and you’ll earn some hard cash. They are that badass. Only downside is they require a lot of complicated simultaneous picking and fret changing, and a combination picking and strumming. It’s complicated, but beautiful.
I don’t have a classical guitar, I just play classical style on a steel string acoustic, it gives a REALLY badass sound. It’s extremely hard though because I have to do shit like arpeggiate bar chords, which is quite hard on steel string, Lol And I love spanish guitar, it’d be fun to learn some.
I think some of the furious picking and strumming switches would be difficult on steel strings :x
