I suppose if you take it slow this would be a good place to start as it is one of THE fingerstyle songs.

Dust in the wind

Alright cool thanks man! I'm gonna have to try that one out. Anyone else? Also if ya know one how about like a slow sad sounding one?

ya Dust in the Wind can be played from easy to very tough.

One you learn a pattern(s) you can pretty much finger style any songs you already know as well.

I like to fingerstyle Hendrix sometimes... it can sound kinda funky.

A few parts to More than a Feeling by Boston are fingerpicked. So is Dee by Randy Rhoads, but you may have to work at that one a bit

yeah, I'm trying to learn Dee but ... I really don't think it's a song that beginners should tackle. I'm a beginner myself and I'm kind of struggling with it.

My suggestion would be R.E.M's Everybody Hurt's. It's slow, its sad sounding it follows a solid chord sequence, the finger pattern isn't complicated at all and justinguitar.com has a really good lesson on how to play the song.

Dust in the Wind is easy to learn IMO....Travis picking, once you get it, is used throughout. Thrown in that ring finger though and I'm fumbling all over the place.

Wow... Dee by Randy Rhodes.. . hehe.. .I haven't heard or even thought off that song in 20 years. That used to be one of the holy grails amongst the guitar geeks in the neigborhood.

Easy: The Iron and Wine version of Such Great Heights
Harder: Landslide by Fleetwood Mac

Iron and Wine have some others, but Such Great Heights is fairly slow and pretty easy to pick out the pattern.
