Here's a free edition of one of the most beloved works in the repertoire, Asturias (Leyenda) by Isaac Albéniz (1860-1909). The notation PDF is free and if you want to purchase the TAB it is also available. I've based this mainly on arrangement on the piano score and the John William's performance but also a little bit on the Segovia and Romero edition. You can also find the tab as a hardcopy in my Classical Guitar Tab book on Amazon.
Video Lessons & Performances of Asturias
My video lesson on for Asturias, 40min of walk-through and discussion. Watch Pepe Romero's video below for a very similar performance of my edition. Youtube video lesson link (HD)
Pepe Romero's fingering is very close to my edition, the upward arpeggios at 59 are different, but especially the inner rubato section with chords instead of harmonics is super similar. I'd start here.
Williams: I grew up listening to John Williams and still like his direct and rhythm approach.
Bustos: I like lots of what Busto's is doing here but it's different as are the following.
