Bron-Yr-Aur is definitely my favorite. Babe I'm Gonna Leave You is hybrid picking, but you can play it fingerstyle. Babe I'm Gonna Leave You has to be my favorite song by Led.

I found Stairway to Heaven to be a good fingerpicking song, also try Creed's arms wide open, and Eric Clapton's Tears in Heaven.
Good Finger Picking Songs.

My favorite finger picked song to play is an instrumental off of CKY's new album called Behind the Screams. But FYI the tab on this website isn't the best one.

apart from the popular classic tunes already mentioned such as Blackbird, Landslide, Dust in the Wind etc... there's a really nice fingerpicking song on the new Paul Mccartney's album called "Jenny Wren"; great fun to play; it uses sort of a Blackbird-style picking. Don't know if there's a tab for it yet but it is definitely worth learning
#64
Oh come on..... nobody has said it yet?

Crazy on You, by Heart. The intro is good for fingerpicking. Plus its a great song, lets face it. =P
#66
yeah how bout"dust in the wind" its so cool to play cuz it makes me smile then i get big happy again
#67
Um...How about Eriatarka-The Mars Volta

Not originally played on acoustic OR fingerpicked. But it sounds absolutely beautiful that way.
#71
"The Bard's Song" by Blind Guardian. Great for two people to play together.

Tell me why I had to be a powerslave
I dont wanna die, Im a god, why cant I live on?

And in my last hour,
Im a slave to the power of death

Beatles:
Dear Prudence (in drop D ...)
Julia (capo on II)

Bruce Cockburn:
Foxglove (in open C tuning)
Pacing the Cage (Capo on IV)
Train in the Rain (open c, I think)

When I started out I practiced a wide variety of picking patterns to train my fingers (pipm, etc.). This has made it much easier to play new songs & to learn them by ear.
#75
vaseline machine gun by leo kottke. took me fore ever because there several different patterns he uses , but you sound like a badass when you play it
#76
there is acctually a finger picking lesson in the lessons archive which contains some tabs that is great practice and sounds nicely.

Sorry if someone said this, but Boy With a Coin by Iron and Wine.

I put it in another thread, but I think I'll copypasta it here, it seems relevant.


Something by Iron and Wine

These are some to start off. If she has a hard heart, skip to the last two.

Naked As We Came
Faded From The Winter
Such Great Heights (Postal Service Cover)
Love And Some Verses
Boy With a Coin

THE BIGGEST GUNS IN YOUR ARSENAL:

The Trapeze Swinger
JEZEBEL!!!

Heh, technically, it was "songs to impress girls" but all of them are excellent fingerpicking songs.

Acoustic #3 - Goo Goo Dolls
Slow Motion - Third Eye Blind
Still - Foo Fighters
Into Dust - Mazzy Starr
Battle of the Beaconsfield Miners - Foo Fighters
Razor - Foo Fighters
Hallelujah - Jeff Buckley

Heart Shaped Box by Nirvana played acoustic sounds GREAT too!

I know these might not be up there with Tesla, Clapton, and Zepplin but they're still good for practicing and learning.

Has anyone mentioned the Who's "Behind Blue Eyes" yet? The beginning is beautiful. Oh and Green Sleeves too! (Also called King Henry the 8th- I believe)
