Default Looking for good Intermediate finger picking songs

I'm pretty new to this site so hopefully I do this right. I've been playing guitar for a few years now and I'm looking for songs that will challenge me. One of my favorites to play is Time in a Bottle by Jim Croce. Does anyone know of songs similar to this one that aren't too difficult to play? Or what are some favorites you guys like to play? I generally use UltimateGuitar to find tabs and whatnot but I don't know if you guys know other websites with free tabs?

Jerry’s guitar bar has a pretty good variety of songs. There are several free videos and the rest need to be purchased but are fairly inexpensive and come with Tabs. I’ve found the video lessons to be VERY helpful as sometimes there are certain tips that make your life much easier. Generally speaking ive found the pay tabs to be much more accurate and reliable, just my experience though.

As for specific songs... Blackbird is an easy tune but sounds great and everybody knows it. Also since you like Croce, “Operator” while not easy isn’t t terribly difficult. “Sounds of Silence” is another one that’s fairly easy.

Good luck,
Jeff

Another vote for Jerry's Guitar Bar and thanks SouthpawJeff for suggesting it. I've bought probably over 30 lessons including some collections like Donovan and Joni Mitchell. He is a great teacher and his videos are split-screen, very professionally done, step-by-step. If you search for him on You Tube, he has a lot of videos there with free intros to the songs so you can see if you like them.

I love his lessons because they focus on entire songs (vs. skills/technique/licks) and because the songs are ones I really want to learn, e.g., 60's/70's folk and pop. I am currently on a Don McClean kick and working on "Castles in the Air" and "Vincent."

There is a ton of stuff on Jerry's. I had bought a lesson last year from him and now just bought two more. Fun stuff to learn.
