Thumb-Finger Independance! There's a great instruction video, by Tommy Emmanuel, where he stresses thumb independance... and give a few lessons!

Here Comes the Sun
Blackbird
Road Trippin

Those are good for Fingerpicking

Frieght Train
Windy And Warm

Those are great for Thumb independance! They've got melodies that are found in chords! They're simple sounding songs... but you'll be suprised how difficult it is to get that thumb going by its self!
