If you are a man, I have been told in good faith that women absolutely love to hear a pretty fingerpicking piece and if you are a woman, then, believe me, it is a very attractive sight, watching a woman play one of the following pieces.
These songs (or instrumental pieces in case of two of Spanish Romance and Andantino) are in my teaching experience the ten best to learn if you want to mesmerize and stun your audience while still being relatively simple to play.
Yes, I know, I know, not all of them are easy.
Remember, nothing really is easy with guitar playing, BUT these ten sound soooo good they are worth persevering with.
If you are an experienced fingerpicker, these ten fingerpicking songs won`t pose too many problems for you but if you like myself come from an electric rock background, you will need to start off slowly and work your way up (especially if you need faster chord changes). I have ordered the list of ten by levels of difficulty.
Number 1 is the easiest and each one gets harder.
When you do you learn these you will be irresistible to the opposite sex, a better guitarist for it, and have some of the most beautiful songs and pieces of music in your repertoire to call upon at any time.
As a bonus, these pieces of music are some of the most popular to be played at weddings, so once you master them; you may even find work as a live wedding guitarist. Now, how cool would that be?
