Hey guys, I've just been told that I to improve my electric technique I should learn some fingerpicking and acoustic style stuff, on electric you can hide bad play behind distortion. What's something not to difficult to start off? And something that I can move on to as I get a bit better.

Note: I can play some pretty stuff on electric guitar, like the Rhapsody solo and a few metal songs.
Fingerpicking is fun on acoustic! but we, the metal generation prefer to play on with the power cords and rough stuff rather than fingerpicking and playing classics.
A few of my favourate metal bands play some acoustic songs with finger picking, would there be any value in trying some of those on for size?
