Classical Guitar technique: studies, scales, arpeggios, theory
Study #7 from Carcassi Opus 60 is a good tremolo practice piece.
It also has some challenging, string skipping arpeggio's tacked on the end of the trem sections. I also like the fact that 99% of the tremolo work is done on strings other than the high E string.
tremolo peices not by mangore/tarrega
For me, I am not so fond of tremolo pieces that consist of nothing but the tremolo. I love listening to Paco de Lucia cut loose in a section of music and burn off some tremolo.
For classical guitar I love alot of the ones already mentioned here by the other members. I may have overlooked it, but just to add another one that I did not readily see, I like a piece called " The Chinese ", from Carlo Domeniconi, " Three Studies for the Spirit ". The Chinese is Study #2 of the 3.

You are probably refering to "Campanas del Alba". It's extremely beautiful.

Maria Linnemann "Lied der Wildrose"
I have recorded that some years ago but please don't be too hard with your criticism. In 2008 just began playing again after 20 years or so..http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvpEctjAX5A
There is nothing more beautiful than the sound of a guitar - maybe aside from that of two guitars (Frederic Chopin)

I suggest you my tremolo composition 'Sea of Tranquility' from 'Lunar Studies for the right hand control'.

Finally my students plays the tremolo, because it is a modern piece!
