I'm not sure if this question is gonna be off-topic, if so, excuse me and feel free to delete. I played classical guitar for a few years, then switched to the electric guitar, but now I feel like picking up the classical guitar again. Only problem is, I can't really find any songs which I could practise, and where sheet music is available.

I'd describe my level as intermediate, but as I haven't played classical guitar a long time, I'm mainly searching for songs which focus on the right hand and arpeggios rather than on the left hand. Thanks for any suggestions.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Where have you looked? There are lots and lots of books covering this. –  Matthew Read Oct 8 '13 at 14:39
This question appears to be off-topic because it is basically a "shoppling list" type of question, albeit about musical scores. –  Dave Oct 23 '13 at 16:15

Well, a classic one (pardon the pun) would be Romance by anonymous. Nothing but right-hand arps/rolls.

Although the left hand is fairly easy, the right hand tremolo in Recuerdos De La Alhambra is another great one for the right hand (if right-handed player). If you've never done or have that technique, the song may border on advanced.

Also, there is a great book that I enjoy playing out of called The Complete Idiots Guide to Classical Guitar which has 30 songs at all levels complete w/2 cds of recordings.

or amazon etc. Local music shops, barnes and nobles or maybe even your local library might carry it.
