Well, since i played acoustic guitar for 2 years before starting with electric and i only fingerpicked on the acoustic. i had to learn how to use a pick on the electric which was quite challenging.
after after a 4 year guitar break i started playing again about 3 months ago.
the first song i learned was nothing else matter from metallica, i suggest trying to play that too with fingerpicking ofc. i only use my pick on the solo.
in my opinion it isnt a hard song to learn and in it there are single string parts, 2-3 strings at the same time and strumming.

Sorry if you might not understand everything i said since my english aint the best. (dutch)

Yeah, Blackbird's a great introduction to fingerpicking, and it sounds great

Learning fingerpicking is almost entirely about right hand technique. Songs that are primarily fingerpicked are great for learning at first because they get that right hand moving. The way I learned was by songs also, stuff like Blackbird (The Beatles), Spanish Romance, Dust in the Wind (Kansas), Classical Gas (Mason Williams), etc. PIMA is important to remember and those songs are a great tutorial.

Also, try searching and asking in the Acoustic and Classical forum, those guys know their chops
