Hey, I'm looking for some good fingerpicking/classical songs to get my fingers going. I've just learnt Fur Elise, Road Trippin', Greensleeves and Blackbird and would appreciate any suggestions on any other songs like this. Songs that require a lot of picking and picking on different strings at once as well as chord changes etc. Thanks in advance
You are like a hurricane
There's calm in your eye.
And I'm gettin' blown away
To somewhere safer
where the feeling stays.
I want to love you but
I'm getting blown away.

A lot of the Eric Clapton finger picking songs on a classical guitar are very nice. Not as easy as they sound though. 'Tears in Heaven' is a good example of the style:

Willy Nelson also plays some great stuff on his beat up old Gibson Classical [He's never played on steel strings].

Paul Simon and Willie Nelson - 'Homeward Bound' is a good example in the right direction and a wonderful sound if your up to the possibilities but not so easy to master:

Songs from the final fantasy series - 'eternity memories of lightwaves' and 'To Zanarkand' - this is also called 'at Zanarkand' for some reason.
