If you want to learn a song that takes skills, go for Never Going Back Again - Fleetwood Mac

If you want some tough fingerpicking stuff, play some classical. That's all fingerpicking and weird chords.

First of all, Stairway and Tears in Heaven don't require much skill. Anyway, you could try classical gas if you want a song as about the same skill level as Tears or Stairway.

Now your talking my kinda stuff. Lindsay Buckingham has got skillz on top of skillz to do that with a guitar.

Don't listen to the guy who said stairway and tears dont require much talent, cause while they might not be the hardest songs, they are still not simple strumming songs. Anyways, Fleetwood Mac's got some great fingerpicking songs...hotel california is great...and a song that sounds cool is Kansas - dust in the wind, kind of repetitive but def sounds good

an epic one is Bouree by Johann Sebastian Bach
its classical and its really awsome sounding plus fairly difficult to play... atleast for me ahaha.

Ocean by the John Butler Trio is good
The Light and the Glass by Coheed and Cambria sounds nice but isn't very hard.

Good lord. You are amazing.

It's stereo amp, and I don't think it's tube. However, for a stereo amp, it is very good. Don't plug guitar into it; just use it as hi-fi if it works.

Aww come on , i wouldnt call it harder than stairway.
I mean , both require using finger/hybrid picking , except that the finger changing might be slightly akward , but its hell of a good practice in that case.

Ah i suppose.. lol
It depends on what guitar its being played on, I always thing classical guitar music MAS to be played on a classical guitar otherwise i feel dirty when I play it.
Also, that song is one of the peices you can play to do your grade 8 classical exams on the ABRSM board.

Worth a crack I'd say, I've long forgotten how to play it... its all been replaced with Tarrega :p.

Babe I'm Gonna Leave You, I find it much harder than Stairway. Tough to get at first, but it's like riding a bike, you have trouble gettin' the hang of it, but once you get itrealatively smoothed out, you have it down. You might wanna try the chords to Wild Horses, or The Trees by Rush.
I've got a bike you can ride it if you like

Mood For A Day- YES

I think that wood be a great choice as well, especially since you have a classical guitar. There are a couple fast licks, but you should be able to do them.

Give Crazy on You by Heart a try, its not too bad, the start is interesting

Tommy Emmanuel's version of Classical Gas is good, but incredibly hard.
But there's no sense crying over every mistake, you just keep on trying till you run out of cake.
