any song by 3, although I doubt you'll be able to play Joey Eppard's parts (they're hard and there aren't many tabs of their songs online).

"Classical Soul"

Sounds like Classical Gas but is a lot easier!

3 is one of my favorite bands. eppard actually inspired me to learn classical style. some serious prog rock there. but his playing is pretty tricky, so give that a while. when you can nail classical gas or something comparable try to find a good tab for bramfatura. i think there's one on here, and they have fan-made tabs on their website in the forums (theband3.com). i think the one here is missing a small part, but at that ponit if you listen to it you could probably figure it out. it's hard, but it's a guaranteed show-stopper.
in the meantime, try the trees by rush, and you could also learn more than a feeling by boston if you can find a good tab. it converts to fingerstyle very well, though you still have to strum the chorus and the bit after the chorus. those two are fairly easy.

The Light and the Glass, Always and Never, and IRO-Bot by Coheed and Cambria. Easter, The Missing McCloud Boys, Our Darling Daughter....., and Wayne Andrews by the Prize Fighter Inferno. Dust in the Wind is also a good easy one, but its already been suggested several times.

Its been said 10000000000 times before, but Blackbird is a good starter. Angel by Matt Nathanson is super easy, and Late Winter Early Spring (When Everyone Goes to Mexico) is awesome, pick out John Denvers part in the back and it sounds great.

Support the troops-country joe, If some one can figure out the chords it's a good very simple fingerpicked song.

gotta go with the simple; blackbird, and ode to joy

i think those are the only songs i can play the whole way through without messing up (yeah, sad i know.. never been able to fingerpick good. i don't know how many times i've tried learning landslide by fleetwood mac.. just can't keep up.)
