Do you guys have any tips or excercises on how to get better at the Golpe?
I'm really interested in the way Gabriela from Rodrigo y Gabriela does it while playing the rhythm chords. It sounds awesome.

Also how would I go about practicing with the Index/middle/ring finger picking technique on the acoustic or the classical guitar? (sorry if it has another name) I mean, any songs which help the technique tremendously?
I started with classical but haven't practiced that technique for at least two years and can no longer afford a teacher. I can't find of my old books either.

Any help would be appreciated.

look up Broons Bane, it's by Rush, and it's a great fingerpicking song.

Are you looking to improve finger independence? Anyway here are some finger picking techniques I ran across in an old book.

--------0-----------0--- R Repeat
-----0----0------0---0- M
--1-----------1--------- I
-------------------------
-------------------------
--0-----------0---------

-------------------0-- R
-----0----0----0----0 M
--1----1----1-------- I
-----------------------
-----------------------
--0----0----0--------

----------3--------------------------0-- R
--------0---0---------------------1---1 M
------0-------0---0-----------0---------0----0 I
-----------------0---------------------------2
-----------------------------3
--3--------------------------

Also The Start of Metal gear solid skateboarding theme I usually add an extra d note on the 4th sting for the first three parts and include an E on the 1st for the fourth.

------------2------2--------------------2------2-------------0------0-------------------4-----4-----4

And a cool little exercise I picked up from the Rock House Method learn "Rock Guitar" by John McCarthy

Actually, that is the type of fingerpicking I can do. Sorry, I should've specified.

The type of picking I'm interested in is like, tremolo picking on one string with the three fingers. Like Ralph Macchio did in "Crossroads"? When he didn't use a pick.
