Discussions relating to the classical guitar which don't fit elsewhere.
hi, ive been looking for some really beautiful tremolo songs, ive already learnt El ultimo tremolo by Barrios and Recuerdos by Tarrega, can anyone tell me some more really nice tremolo songs?

Absolutely. IMO the best tremolo piece on the guitar. Fantastically beautiful. Difficult, though...
Tarrega/Arcas's fantasy on La Traviata has a very short but beautiful tremolo section.
Karin Schaupp's transcription of Mascagni's famous intermezzo makes great use of tremolo, and is a great version. Not sure if it's published though.
Tarrega's Gran Jota has a lengthy tremolo section.

For something newer, and with a very beautiful feel;
I'm a fan of the contemporary piece "Serenata Del Mar" by Rex Willis.
Type it into youtube to find a very wonderful performance by Miss Ana Vidovic playing it.

These are all great pieces mentioned so far.
Rodrigo's "Invocation and Dance" is one of my favourite pieces with tremolo. There are lots of allusions to De Falla's pieces, Miller's Dance, Nana, Fisherman's Song, etc.
Another one is Koshkin's "Merlin's Dream". This one requires a fair bit of string crossing - both up and down during the tremolo section.
About 6 years ago I made a web page which listed all the tremolo pieces I knew of. I haven't kept it up but it is still there. I won't use a direct link but if you google for (pamilearner tremolo list tripod) it should come up.
Another choice, there is a piece, fantasia original by jose vinas, in em.

A second vote for that one!
