I'm a beginner at the acoustic guitar, and I'd really like to play some pieces on it besides the usual chords and stuff.

Could you recommend me some such pieces? I'm fine with pieces that were originally for some other instrument as long as I can play them at my current level of ability.

(I can play the intro to Fur Elise pretty well, so that should give you an idea of what I know how to do now.)

Maybe you'd want to play the melody part of Pavane Op.50 – Zafer Cesur Mar 1 '14 at 14:57
Bach's compositions sound also very sweet on acoustic guitar. If you get interested in playing without pick, you could try Minuet in G minor – Zafer Cesur Mar 1 '14 at 15:09
@ZaferCesur Just for info, the Minuet in G minor BWV Anh. 115 is not by Bach, but by Christian Perzold. – Édouard Mar 1 '14 at 19:15
Flight of the Bumblebee might also be a good one. There's a clarinet transcription that should work, or the oboe one if you don't want to transpose. Might not be able to play it right away, but it should offer good practice for many years. – luser droog Mar 2 '14 at 6:40
@Édouard Cool! I didn't know that. – Zafer Cesur Mar 2 '14 at 11:27

Clarinet music fits pretty well with the range of guitar and there's a lot of it for all playing levels.

Clarinet scores have been a secret of famous neo-classical guitarists like Richie Blackmore and me. – traitor Mar 1 '14 at 17:31
