Fire and Rain (acoustic guitar solo) as it is knownon winmx is amazing. not in it's (fairly advanced) complexity, but in it's mood.

Jazz in the box by doyle dykes is purely amazing. one of those bass in the the thumb tune in the fingers ones.

Satellite by Dave Matthews Band. Now that is a hard song to fingerpick. at least one guitar part is finger picked i think????

why isnt Tears in Heaven by Eric Clapton on the list. Sure its not terribly difficult but it is still hard

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

Funny enough when the man himself messes or changes the song himself because of the difficulty. "Lenny/Man On The Side" is pretty brutal also.
Epiphone SG Special

Dont think Blackbird or Yesterday are that hard compared to some of the others. I'd put in some Michael Hedges stuff, well the ones that you can play on normal guitar. Also, what about The Clap and Mood For A Day by Yes. Top quality acoustic guitaring.

staiway isnt really advanced though is it?

We have been taking it for granted, I can be considered as one, yes

funny how its a electric guitar song and its being mentioned in the acoustic forum. sounds crummy on acoustic when I play it or someone else plays it.

Bron Yr Aur from The Song Remains the Same, basically the studio version but twice as fast. open C fingerpicking and it will keep you busy for a while.

hey guys, i'm new to this forum but i've been using this site for tabs for while
I started playing last fall with my dad's guitar
i think i'm good for that time. I'm Russian so I fingerpick, its hard for me to play with pick, but I fingerpick very well. I have an acoustic.
On that list I can play Blackbird by Beatles and Babe I'm Gonna Leave You by Led Zeppelin.. I can also play all of Stairway to Heaven really well, except for the solo, which i'm working on. I can also play lots of parts from many Led Zeppelin songs.

Which one of these other songs would be good to learn next with the same, or a bit more difficulty than Black Bird or Babe I"m Gonna Leave You?
