Classical Gas - Mason Williams, a good song, nice upbeat tempo, good for warmin the fingers.
Why do people say its by Eric Clapton?
the version with only the guitar was indeed done by eric clapton for the soundtrack to the movie "The Story of Us".
and on the topic of advanced fingerpicking, check out any song by Bruce Cockburn. he is a fantastic fingerpicker

Im thinking "Neon" by John Mayer is pretty intense and hard....maybe jusy me, but I know all the people Ive heard "who can play it" can't come close to matchign it. "Grace is Gone" by DMB is another mellow one with alot of improv
ya dude, i am trying to learn "neon" right now, it is pretty darn tough. To play that main line correctly you have QUICKLY incorporate palm slaps. Thats the way john does it. I saw him in a new light after trying to play that song. There is a good tab for it on www.powertabs.net. , if you have power tab editor.

Jim Croce. A lot of his stuff is finger picked and is quite difficult, in my opinion.
Then again I am new to this acoustic stuff as I just got one two days ago after a year of crappy electric playing and 4 months of intense bass playing.
Specifically look at "a long time ago"

Hotel California is always picked unless u are playing the classical guitar solo from the Hell Freezes over album which is very hard.
Bron Yr Aur Stomp by Led Zeppelin is not a finger picking tune its all done with a pick sheesh how hard is it to tell that page is using a pick go watch the dvd if u dont believe me.
White Summer and Blackmountain Side are both done with a pick..........yes thats right its done with a pick go watch the dvd if u dont like it.
add in Spanish Romance the full hard version by Andre Segovia.
Dust in The Wind finger picking version i think??????not sure
