"Dust In the Wind" - Kansas

You can fingerpick the piano part for "Brick" by Ben Folds Five.

Fingerpicking "Good Riddance (Time of your Life)" by Green Day helps too.

The more patterns you can teach your fingers, the better

But anyway, I would second Nothing Else Matters and Dust in the Wind. Classical Gas is a good one too, but it's a bit more difficult that the others. Actually, I have more trouble playing Blackbird that I do Classical Gas...

Brain Damage sounds good on an acoustic fingerpicked. Acoustic version of Love Of My Life by Queen is good. I know people are going to laugh, but Unbreak My Heart is good for fingers.

Pretty much any Nirvana song off of Unplugged, Nothing Else Matters, the acoustic verse of Fade to Black (its a little tricky at first) by Metallica...Californication, I guess...

That's a really good one.
I also really like "Streets Of London" - Ralph McTell, which is a really good to fingerpick (if you have the right tab)

k, everyone is naming picking songs, not finger picking songs.

Classical Gas, Road Tripping, Babe I'm gonna leave you, Dust in the wind, Blackbird, Under the bridge, I should've lied, Bron-Y-Aur Stomp, Landslide. That is all that I can think of off of the top of my head.

Didn't he spell it more like "Lenard Skinard"? Then you changed it to protect him from identity theft or sumthin?

I suggest a little one I call Stairway to Heaven

The White Pass Trail by Laurence Juber is a great song. It's in DADGAD tuning and some parts are fast, but it's really fun to play.

yeah classical gas is much easier than blackbird i think. classical gas is generally thought to be much harder than it is. i guess it's because it sounds so great. just because something sounds amazing doesn't mean it's hard! classical gas sounds amazing when played well and it's really not that hard once you get the patterns down.

and also, someone mentioned landslide which is a GREAT reccomendation, i can't believe i left that out of my original post. landslide is a fantastic song!

I didn't know Babe I'm Gonna Leave You was fingerpicked. To my knowledge it isn't. But I might be mistaken.

And I'm almost positive that Bron-Y-Aur Stomp is hybrid picking. Meaning he uses his pick and his middle, ring, and pinky. That's how I play it at least.

A good fingerpicking song is Bron-Y-Aur.
