Do you know of some good Fingerpicking songs?

Postby Death Legion » Sat May 16, 2009 5:22 am

Hello guyz :tongue:

Been a while since my last post, but I continue to check sometimes this forum because of it's funny threads :woot:

I recently started to try to improve my Fingerpicking skill, and I wanted to know if some of you guys knew songs (or part of songs) that are played with Fingerpicking style and that sounds cool.

I actually only know how to play 3 songs in Fingerpicking:

I also know that Hotel California, by The Eagles is played in Fingerpicking, but I haven't find yet a good tab for it (maybe someone here knows of one?).

It'd be very kind if you could post songs that you know are played like this, and if possible a link to a tab (I have Guitar Pro, so if you have a GP version, you can send it too :tongue: ), and/or the song on YouTube/DailyMotion/etc...

Thanks in advance :woot:

Well, you can try any song by Dire Straits, Doyle Dykes, Frederic Mesnier, or maybe:
A Song For Life and Dusty by Eric Johnson,
Tears in Heaven by Eric Clapton,
And anything classical like Bach, Chopin, Beethoven, Grieg, etc.

I play that part with a pick, if you're speaking of the intro.

also, Creed - One Last Breath. the intro/main riff is fingerpicked. cool song too, IMO - but Creed's not everyone's forte... :p

I don't use any finger picking for Fur Elise. I play the arpeggios with sweeps cept all slow like.

Even though it is meant to be picked, fingerpicking the clean part of The Day That Never Comes by Metallica and the clean parts to Call of Ktulu by Metallica are hellishly good exercises. Also, Ode to Joy is probably the easiest classical song you'll find.
