an australian guy called Nick Charles who's an amazing country influenced fingerstylist, i suggest you check him out he's awesome. I don't even like country that much but his stuff is impressive

Nick Drake- 5 Leaves Left is a cool album

Davey Graham- Hmm, too much to pick. He's does so many genres whatever album you get you might like or loathe. Just go Greatest Hits or Best Of or whatever he's got out ;)

Bert Jansch is very similar to Davey Graham, voice 'n all. Still cool though.

Devendra Banhart- Nino Rojo and Rejoicing in the Hands have some fingerstyle. EDIT: Not to say that his others don't, but Oh Me Oh My might be not be a good introduction. You'd either love it or hate it.

Simon and Garfunkel too!

If you're looking electric- The Doors guitarist plays fingerstyle. And Mark Knopfler/Dire Straits.

Peter Buck. He doesn't really finger pick a lot, though. Also, check out Josť Gonzales.

I saw some documentary which said he did. I have no idea if he really does... Sounds sorta like he could.

Hmm, as far as I know, he plays with a pick. At least he did during his most jingly-jangly period. And I knid of assumed he did during his later career as well. I may very well be wrong.

I guess Robbie Krieger from the Doors would be a good one. And someone told me that Ritchie Blackmore fingerpicks. Is that true?
