apart from the popular classic tunes already mentioned such as Blackbird, Landslide, Dust in the Wind etc... there's a really nice fingerpicking song on the new Paul Mccartney's album called "Jenny Wren"; great fun to play; it uses sort of a Blackbird-style picking. Don't know if there's a tab for it yet but it is definitely worth learning

Love Will Keep Us Alive by Eagles is the best fingerpicking exercise there is. Possibly best song fingerpicking song too.

Um...How about Eriatarka-The Mars Volta

Not originally played on acoustic OR fingerpicked. But it sounds absolutely beautiful that way.

"The Bard's Song" by Blind Guardian. Great for two people to play together.

Dear Prudence (in drop D ...)
Julia (capo on II)

Bruce Cockburn:
Foxglove (in open C tuning)
Pacing the Cage (Capo on IV)
Train in the Rain (open c, I think)

When I started out I practiced a wide variety of picking patterns to train my fingers (pipm, etc.). This has made it much easier to play new songs & to learn them by ear.

Sorry if someone said this, but Boy With a Coin by Iron and Wine.
Really, just any Iron and Wine will do.

I put it in another thread, but I think I'll copypasta it here, it seems relevant.

Something by Iron and Wine

These are some to start off. If she has a hard heart, skip to the last two.

Naked As We Came
Faded From The Winter
Such Great Heights (Postal Service Cover)
Love And Some Verses
Boy With a Coin

THE BIGGEST GUNS IN YOUR ARSENAL:

The Trapeze Swinger
JEZEBEL!!!

Heh, technically, it was "songs to impress girls" but all of them are excellent fingerpicking songs.

Acoustic #3 - Goo Goo Dolls
Slow Motion - Third Eye Blind
Still - Foo Fighters
Into Dust - Mazzy Starr
Battle of the Beaconsfield Miners - Foo Fighters
Razor - Foo Fighters
Hallelujah - Jeff Buckley

Heart Shaped Box by Nirvana played acoustic sounds GREAT too!

I know these might not be up there with Tesla, Clapton, and Zepplin but they're still good for practicing and learning.

Has anyone mentioned the Who's "Behind Blue Eyes" yet? The beginning is beautiful. Oh and Green Sleeves too! (Also called King Henry the 8th- I believe)
