Can someone help me with finding some acoustic fingerpicking riffs, like you hear on old blues albums?
You want tabs for them, or actual songs ? Because if you want songs, you can't beat Robert Johnson IMO. Guessing that's not what you want though.
There is poetry in despair.
i checked out some of his stuff, its a lot of slide and alternate tuning, im kinda looking more john lee hooker, muddy waters
Try some Skip James (tabs are a little hard to find but alot of stuff is in standard-check out Cypress Grove and Crow Jane). Some of Big Bill Broonzy's stuff is in standard too. Acoustic blues are going to be hard to find for what you want, just as a heads up. Very little of the classic stuff isn't in open tuning or full of slide.
