Lmfao, this is the best thread ever, aside from the fact that it involves a girl being harpooned through a tent.

Learn the rest of Blackbird by the Beatles- its pretty easy. That was my first fingerpick song. Later try learning The Needle and the Damage Done by Neil Young. Its a bit harder, and will help you progress better.

If all else fails, just make up a pattern and fingerpick the chord progression to any song.

Learn "We are going to be friends" by The White Stripes- Look up anything by Iron and Wine, almost all of it is fingerpicking.
Inferiors revolt in order that they may be equal, and equals that they may be superior. Such is the state of mind which creates revolutions. -Aristotle

Spanish Romance.

Really easy for the first few bars (like intro to Nothing...) which lets you get into the fingerpicking pattern which doesn' t really change thereafter.

A few interesting stretches,I have little hands, and some barre shapes that I was new to but nothing too difficult.

Sounds good even when played slow.

Landslide - Fleetwood Mac

Think this is another staple fingerpicking song, quite easy, simple chord shapes and only slight variation in the finger picking pattern.
