Right-o, this feels like it should be in a thread, but there weren't any really relevant threads that weren't long since dead, so, here it is.

I'm looking to get into some Tommy Emmanuel style stuff. I've been an electric player for quite a while and I'm pretty good at what I do on the electric, but it doesn't transfer over onto the acoustic so well.

So I just want some songs that sort of progress in difficulty to get me into the more complex Tommy Emmanuel style stuff. Finger picking sort of stuff. Any artists is fine, preferably it would sound good and be fun to play, but so long as it builds up my finger picking technique and eventually leads me into the direction to get to that level.

As for the level I'm at now... Well, I can play Nothing else Matters. >.> The Mason Williams version of classical gas. Mostly. I'M REALLY AN ELECTRIC PLAYER, OKAY?

So I guess we're starting from beginner stuff. Thanks guys.

Marshall amplifiers are the truest purveyors of rock and roll known to man.

"And give a man an amplifier and a synthesizer, and he doesn't become whoever, you know. He doesn't become us."

Holy crap, check this out!
