    I'm really getting into fingerpicking these days. Can anyone suggest any good songs for it? I'm looking for something like:
    Here Without You
    Time of Your Life
    I wouldn't mind if they're more complex either.

    1 song that i'm fingerpicking on these days is the unplugged version of BAATEIN KUCH ANKAHEE SI from the movie Metro.

    i also fingerpick on WHEN YOU SAY NOTHING AT ALL (ronan keating).

    Dust in the wind.

    I'm actually looking songs which sound soft but are still fun to play. Nothing Else Matters is soft but too slow. I want stuff like Time of Your Life - Green Day.
    Anyway, which band is dust in the wind.

    Dust In The Wind

    ^ i think he's talking about Dust in the Wind by KANSAS :think:

    you can also try "are we the waiting" by greenday or "patience" by gnr.

    How about Presence of Lord - Eric Clapton?

    I don't want blues songs. The Love Song by Tesla is good. That's the kind of stuff I want. I know Clapton's big on fingerpicking but that's not the kind I want now.

    and few more if you want some dark nihilistic stuff:

    try out and listen to Opeth's Damnation

    every single song on that album is acoustic and ROCKS

    also try out the special edition RoadRunner Records Reunited compilation and look out for song by Type O negative's singer Peter Steele & Opeth's Vocalist.. the song is called the The Road

    and next you can try stuff by EVERLAST..chk out the album called White Trash Beautiful..
    surely you'll enjoy!!

    I just said, I don't really want the Clapton Picking songs. Anyway, the others are good.

    i know you did'nt wanted any clapton stuff..but when we first hear the word finger picking its clapton that comes to my mind so wrote those then realized that you want others...

    anyways.. opeth would surely have some food for your hunger..

    have you tried dave mathews band..?
    few others are:
    Black sabbath : Planet Caravan
    Black Sabbath : Orchid
    Demons & Wizards : 2 songs from thier debut album you'll recognize immediately.. i 'm not able to recall the song is something called fiddler on the green i guess..

    try them out

    rabi_sultan <Bulla Ki Jana>

    Well you should be fingerpicking that song since that's what was done in the original. It isn't simple though, look up the artist Alison Krauss.

    Anyways other fingerpicking songs/artists not listed
    Dire Straits - Sultans of Swing
    Dire Straits - Money for Nothing
    Bryan Adams - Summer of '69 (unplugged version can be played finger picking style)
    Chet Atkins
    Jeff Beck
    Mark Knopfler

    And there are loads, loads more.
