What to play depends on how well you know the fretboard and how to read guitar specific music. For example if you se, IV, V, Vii, Ix, do you know what it means and where it is? If your reading skills are good, but you don't know the fretboard, try starting with Frederick M Noad, Solo Guitar Playing and buy a good finger dexterity practice book such as 'Pumping Nylon', then you'll discover some other pieces to keep you challenged.
Good luck.

Hi, Kobbi,
I am happy to help you find interesting stuff to play. But as Immanjd mentioned, it would help if you told a little more about yourself and explained your musical tastes and experience, and how well you read music for the guitar. What do you find interesting?

Thanks for all the advice!
I'm trained in classical piano playing. New to guitar. I read music fluently (notes, not in TAB format). Working my way through Noad's book and also exploring sor and sagreras. I'm mostly missing modern and contemporary repertoire - I have a Bartok book (transcribed), and Brouwer's studies, but would be happy to have a larger variety.
