First, let me apologize for not responding to this query sooner. We have to approve the postings to avoid unwanted spam, and somehow I missed this one asI was going through the process. That's why sometimes things don't appear here for a while after they are posted, but this long a delay is an unfortunate oversight.
"Learn to Fingerpick with Jim Kweskin" is a great intermediate level lesson with lots of great songs. You can see it here: http://www.homespuntapes.com/Instruments/Guitar/fingerpicking/learn-to-fingerpick-with-jim-kweskin
For an authentic look into Merle Travis' actual style, try Thom Bresh's "The Real Merle Travis Guitar." It's somewhat more challenging but it's a lot of fun. http://www.homespuntapes.com/Instruments/Guitar/fingerpicking/the-real-merle-travis-guitar
Then there are all the blues-based fingerpicking lessons by Jorma Kaukonen, Roy Book Binder, Toby Walker... the list is long but you can hardly go wrong.
I'm looking forward to meeting you at the Kaufman Kamp next June.Musically yours,
