well, I'm not entirely sure what easy would be, since I've been playing classical style for a while now. Maybe my fragments of dreams tab from chrono cross?

I myself started with kabukibear's radical dreamers arrangement. Fragments of dreams is like a simple version of that.

Takaf221's tab for Far Off Promise / To Good Friends from Chrono Trigger is a good place to start.

I'd also suggest Kabukibear/Justin's Kids Run Through the City Corner from FF VI and Ron Cruz's arrangement of the Theme of Love from FF IV.

Ron's was the first one I learned all the way through, and the other two are also great, mostly straight-forward pieces. Video examples can be helpful when it comes to getting your picking fingers matched with the intent, I overuse my thumb and neglect my back two fingers for terrible technique.

wow, people actually play my arrangements! I'm shocked.

Anyhoo, to play actual classical stuff look here

Some of them are marked as easy. Try those.

I have played most of your arrangements at least partially :) I spent a whole day going through a lot of your stuff. I even committed your arrangements of "A Wish," "Places in the Heart," and "The Place I'll Return to Someday" to memory.

Onto the subject, I would research some proper technique too. Even though you may think it irrelevant, it will help you out in the long run.
