hey guys, been awhile.. ive been busy at school and such (music major)

but ive recently wanted to pick up finger picking since my right hand is getting a bit more dexterity (ive got a piano class in college)..

anyone know any good pickin songs? once again, i like more of the 60s stuff.. i know dylan would be good and theres probably some beatles tunes..

but ill take any suggestions.

also.. does anyone know where i can learn the clawhammer technique?
ive heard its the best way to pick, but i cant find any thing on it.

A nice fingerpicking pattern is:

-------------3---3-------- ETC:

I use it in a lot.

Simon and Garfunkle have alot of finger picking songs. Bridge over troubled water and sound of silence. House of the rising sun by the animals.

have you heard paco de lucia? he is one of the best fingerpickers ive heard... some parts of some songs of him are easy, and its always fingerpicking.
and i recomend to play with arpegios in minor scales, such es these


and then change the order in which you hit strings... this is a lick of my own..( i thnk im the first guy playing it )..
