I've always played my acoustic srt of like a glorified unamplified electric, and I'd kind of like to change that. Are there any good fingerstyle pieces out on the net that you guys would recommend?
I remember Metal Ken used to have a link to like 30 or so etudes aimed at the beginning classical guitarist, but I don't remember what they were.
Longterm my interest is more blues than classical, but this strikes me as a good way to get some coordination up.

Villa-Lobos's 'Etude #1' is a good place to start. It's not actually quite as intimidating as it sounds, as it's mostly based on a repetitive picking pattern, but it's got some really cool chord shapes and is certainly a great workout for both hands.
