If you're after some moody finger picking, it sometimes doesn't get much moodier than Nick Drake. Also, he used some real cool and interesting tunings for his songs. All of which can be found here, in tab format http://nickdraketabs.co.uk/ ( that website, I find, is more accurate for his stuff. )

If you want some specific songs, have a look through all these, I hope they're the kind of things you're looking for

Day is Done - Tuning: standard capo 5th fret


River Man - Tuning standard capo 3rd fret


Black Eyed Dog - Tuning: GGDGBD (bottom E goes up to a G) or GGDGGB.


Fruit Tree - Tuning BBDGBE Capo 5th fret (i.e. E string tuned down to low B, A string up to higher B)


From the Morning - Tuning (bottom first) BEBEBE capo 1st fret


Road - Tuning EADEBE (capo 2nd fret - it's a little sharp of that though)


Things Behind the Sun - Standard Tuning, capo 4th fret


Rider on the Wheel - Tuning xGDGBD (the bottom string isn't really used)


Clothes of Sand - Tuning: EADGAE Capo 1st fret


Free Ride - Tuning: AADEBE capo3


Pink Moon - Tuning CGCFCE capo 2nd fret (slightly sharp of concert)




If you like any of those, there'll probably be more Nick Drake stuff that you'll like too.

Have a great week
