OP, You can do fingerstyle on what ever you want. Classical guitar is preferred for learning, but that's mainly because it has a wide string spacing which is said to avoid development of bad habits. But if you take care and discipline yourself in your practice well, you can learn fingerstyle on an electric/steel string acoustic too. Just avoid the bad habits (a good teacher should keep them away).
