Any suggetions?

I would like it to be sad, but beautiful, preferably fingerpicking (because i'm learning how).

Since i'm just learning how to finger pick, it shouldn't be super hard.

Thanks :3, i know there are a lot of restrictions and stuff

Another time I was watching lesbian porn and masterbating, when my mom walks in. Like, right as I climax. She's just standing there with her mouth wide open and I'm like "I was curious...go gay rights!" Fu.cking awkward...

Spanish Romance is a good one nobody knows who wrote it. Its got some hard parts but once you get the hang of it you'll realize they are not that hard and the ladies love it

Dust in the wind is a good one

and thanks for making this tread I was looking for some songs like these myself but I alraedy know blackbird.

None of these are classical songs......

Threadstarter, are you looking for actual classical songs or just anything fingerpicking? Two very different realms.....

Don't tell me what can be done, either.

moonlight sonata, i'm working on it now myself, starts out easy enough but there are some convoluted pieces in it that might hurt your hands

Melancholy Galliary by Dowland. It you're starting it may be a little hard though...
Other than that, all you have to get used to is the &**#ing quasi-lute tuning.
How may The National D help you waste your time?

I don't know exactly what your looking for, but an easy one to start with could be Greensleeves?

capricho arabe - paco de lucia

edit: I suppose this song isnt too "sad".. it definatly has a sad feel but there are some.. "happier" parts in it..

I'd say its generally a relaxing song though.. something you could close your eyes and listen to.. if you know what Im sayin :P

Blackbird by the Beatles. And, on Paul McCartneys newer cd, Jenny Wren, its absolutely amazing. Its better than blackbird. And, the actual tuning is down a whole step, but you dont have to play it like that.

justin, that was easily the most inspiring, helpful piece of advice anyone has ever given me in regards to my musical pursuits.

Here Comes the Sun- The Beatles

Meant to be played fast, but if you have an acoustic, play it slow and it's practically taps.

black bird is classical.

Classical is a period of music that existed after Baroque but before Romantic, all 3 of which ended more than 100 years before Paul McCartney was born.

I understand, but it is the same classical style. Carcassi's "eventide" is one from that period.
