Default sheet music for Guitalele

Hi everyone,
I recently decided to upgrade from the ukulele playing I enjoy so much to a guitalele. For those who aren't failiar this is a ukulele sized instrument with 6 strings that has the same interval tuning as a guitar but up a 4th. So instead of the low string being E it's A.

I'm looking to practice some classical music on this and was hoping for suggestions on repertoire that can comfortably be played on this higher register instrument without transposition. My goal is to internalize the fretboard as my musical reference to eventually lead to improvisation and more chordal facility. (I'm actually a saxophone player but still visualize intervals and chords as an arpeggio on the saxophone).

I'm not familiar enough with guitar playing to know if any tune will translate fine to this instrument because I figure they are written to be comfortably played on the E tuned instrument.

Looking forward to what you all have to say.

Best,

Thanks Brady,

I've actually started lessons with a classical guitar teacher and will be learning proper technique on this thing

I think most music for guitar should translate well enough to this so long as it doesn't dwell too much on notes below the low A.
