Here is a great work for beginner and intermediate fingerstyle players: What a Wonderful World for arranged for fingerstyle guitar. It was first recorded by Louis Armstrong and released in 1967 as a single, which topped the pop charts in the United Kingdom. Just remember to play the melody on its own quite often and when you add the rest of the notes just keep the melody intact and played in a singing fashion.
