I'm going to write a bit of background, so skip ahead to my question if you like.
I picked up the guitar at about age 10 or so, knowing very little about music. My grandparents arranged for me to have weekly lessons. I tried several instructors. The first few taught pop music, which I didn't care for. The one I eventually took years of lessons from taught bluegrass.
However, years later, I came to the realization that I simply could not move my fingers fast enough to play the songs this teacher taught. I was also quite busy with other pursuits, so I put down my instrument and never took another lesson or played it with anyone else.
Years later again, I am 29 years old and now once again in possession of a fine guitar that my grandfather once purchased for me in the hope that I might be a musician some day. I have no desire to play professionally, but I have in mind the notion that I might like to play classical music.
I would estimate that I can pluck a string with a flat-pick about 5 times per second; that is not nearly fast enough to play the songs that my teacher used to teach to me. I would estimate that the musician in this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hz6qKeUrL7c) is probably playing at about the fastest pace that I could play without making numerous mistakes.
I wanted to ask for examples of classical songs I might consider learning. I usually play by sight-reading, I have little talent for playing something just by hearing it, so I will want to get sheet music. I would probably start with the song from the video I referenced, but I wouldn't know where to get a transcript from.
