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
