Fingerpicking

ok so i've been fingerpicking for a few months now, and ive learnt blackbird, nothing else matters, and some of tears in heaven. I'm looking for a good song which isn't too challenging but still sounds good and is fun to play, any suggestions?

This thing is easy http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs...romanza_tab.htm , not really challenging but it is fun to play (not as much fun as blackbird though )

ode to joy is a great song, and it will get you started on some classical aspects of finger picking. not too difficult, but may be challenging the first few times you try it out. heres a tab (sorry bout the size):

Not very specific. But if you can only read tabs. Ignore the length of the bars. I'm a badd tabber.

Dancing Fool, its so much more fun to play the full thing. and it sounds soooo much better. what you have is only the melody, which is ok, but not a great fingerpicking exersize.

Try songs by Bread e.g:'Aubrey', 'if', 'baby imma want you'....etc
Or you can really go classical with 'La comparsita', 'Farrucca', 'Malaguana', 'plaisir d'amour' etc...... these songs may not be up-to-date, but theyre fun to play and they sound better than those crap songs of today....literarily

Opeth has some really good fingerpicking parts/songs in their stuff. If you don't feel like weeding through all the metal to find it, "Patterns in the Ivy (I and II) and "Still Day Beneath the Sun" are 2 of my favorites.
