If you've never played fingerstyle before Andy McKee is a bit of a jump in the deep end, learn some basic stuff like greensleeves, blackbird etc to get the feel for finger picking to begin with.

start of with fingerpicking some classical songs. then when you can play them good start playing some easy fingerstyle songs. then you can play the harder stuff..

If you want to start playing fingerstyle you could try the song by creed called "one last breath" oryou can try some Elvis Presley songs like "can't help falling in love".Those songs are very easy fingerstyle songs.

andy mckee or newton faulkner songs are great ! ( i wish i could play like them )
you should try something like :
to know him is to love him - amy winehouse (i know it sucks but..)
or r.e.m - everybody hurts
and one last breath - creed
