Easy pieces to learn...
 
Any suggestions?

I'm currently learning HWV 491 and 494. BWV 1007 prelude and re-working the easy Canon in D I learned a little while ago.

Have you looked at Lagrima or Adelita yet?

Here's Per Olov Lindgren playing Lagrima

How ‘bout:
“Ole Beethoven Had a Farm” e i e i o….
:D
Sorry, couldn’t resist.

Seriously though, the above pieces you listed are not exactly easy. In other words, you’re looking for something easier than that?
I would give the Bach Minuett in G a try. It’s the very popular one he wrote for his wife Anna Magdalena Bach. You’ll find it.
It’s accessible enough, and can be very instructive as a learning tool.
Another is the famous Bourree from the first lute suite in Em. While not easy, it’s more accessible than most of the other material in the Suites. And melodies you can keep track of, both in the trebles and the bass. Also good for learning.

Thanks, I'll look at that.

Similar to the ones I listed I suppose. I used to play both those Bach pieces years ago on steel. Thanks for the reminder.

Lagrima and Estudio in Eminor are fairly easy and sort of on the same level as one another.
Look at The Ashgrove, an old Welsh folk song.

Also, once you learn Guiliani’s “Allegro” you can easily pick up Pink Floyd’s “Is There Anybody Out There”- similar themes and running base lines.

Start learning to read standard notation if you can't already do so.

If something I want to learn isn't in notation with tab I usually punch it into GuitarPro. Any positional adjustments I will then do as I go along. When I retire maybe I'll try expand my reading skills.

If you're looking to get deeper into classical guitar, then I'd suggest pieces written for the guitar vs. transcriptions. 19th century stuff like Giuliani, Carcassi, and Sor is pretty standard for starters.

There's actually several websites that offer classical music for free in tablature

My favorites are

www.classclef.com

AND

www.Classtab.Com

Classclef I knew about, I like being able to get the GP files too. The other one I didn't know about, thanks.

Correction. It's www. Classtab.org
