Ok, there are many many many threads about "what song?", "fingerpicking songs" and etc. I looked over them, but usually I don't find anything interesting. So I'm making this thread.

I want everybody to post fingerpicking songs here. Songs should be acoustic. By that I mean that you can play whole song from the beggining to the end with acoustic guitar. So it means no "intro to X", "part of X" and etc posts. Some song may have some strumming, but most of the song should be fingerpicked. Also songs shouldn't be too much repetitive. I'm talking about those songs where almost in the whole song you play same 2-4 chords with same picking pattern. Even if those few chords sound nice, it really gets bored for listener to listen to that song.

Please, don't post classical songs. This thread is for acoustic, not classical guitar.

Okey, I begin.
These are some of the fingerpicked songs I can already play or I'm still learning them:

Andy McKee - For My Father
Michael Hedges - Two Days Old
Jerry Reed - Jerry's Breakdown
Antoine Dufour - Glimmer of Hope
Pink Floyd - Goodbye Blue Sky
Poets of the Fall - Late Goodbye
Pink Floyd - Is There Anybody Out There? (originaly it is picked, but can be fingerpicked)

I always say this but I think everyone should own "Only" by Tommy Emmanuel, album and tab book, 'The Mystery' also has some amazing acoustic pieces. They're hard but then you listed Jerry Reed and Andy McKee so same ball park!

^ Eric Clapton never recorded Classical Gas, it was Mason Williams (originally)

And also, AFAIK and as far as I have ever seen, I cannot recall Tommy Emmanuel using a normal pick - I usually see him use a thumbpick.

The bards song -Blind Guardian
Ocean-John Butler Trio

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.

Andy McKee's been mentioned a few times, but one of his new songs, "Nakagawa-san" is quite awesome sounding and not as slap/percussive oriented as others.

Boots Of Spanish Leather - Bob Dylan
Jesus The Mexican Boy - Iron And Wine
Such Great Heights - Iron And Wine

furph that is an awesome set list! You must be a great guitarist to put together a set like that, I keep going back to Train to Dusseldorf but always give up... shame on me. I was suprised you haven't learned the Tommy Emmanuel version of Classical Gas?

http://youtube.com/watch?v=TQJ1k2HMoRU



Thanks I have thought really hard about learning tommys version of classical gas, maybe one day.

Im actually currently relearning train to dusseldorf because i relizied i had it completly wrong i wasnt playing all the bass notes with the thumb pick so some bass note were not coming through as loudly. At the moment im practicing 4-5 hours every week night and 12-14 hours both saturday and sunday. its the only way i am going to master these songs, anyone can learn them but mastering them is a whole different story.

Ill suggest jeff buckley's version of Hallelujah (damn fine song), and cavatina, that one is a good one if your looking for a classical esque piece that has more advanced chord progression and is fingerpicked.
Mesa Lonestar Special
Traynor YCV40WR
Ibanez -Artcore AS103BM
Fender American Deluxe Strat
Analog Man ARDX20 Dual Delay
Red Witch Empress Chorus
Big Muff Pi
Boss BD-2
MXR '76 RI Dynacomp
Fulltone Clyde Deluxe Wah
Jetter Jetdrive
EHX POG
