What is your skill level now? I mean r u already playing fingerstyle guitar songs? If you can already play fingerstyle arrangement, then you can start to learn songs from Andy Mckee, Don Ross, Antoine Dufour, Thomas name it. If you want to compose songs in this style, I would suggest you also have some knowledge of drums, because all the percussive sound from hitting the guitar is replacing drums. Find out how you can sound like a bass drum, snare drum...
