I'm looking for some song suggestions that have a fairly easy finger style melody.
Right now I can play the intro to Hotel California by Eagles and Time in a Bottle by Jim Croce, and that's it. And I don't know what else to learn. It doesn't necessarily have to be a ukulele song, just a nice melody I can finger pick. Thanks.

Not sure if this fits your requirement for easy, but Del Rey plays My Creole Belle, written by a Dane, J Bodewalt Lampe iirc
You may know the verse as Creole Belle by Mississippi John Hurt.
Lovely tune

Just looked up Creole Belle and am now trying to work out a melody and some chords. Great old tune.

I'm at the lower end of the learning curve but some fingerpicking songs that I enjoy trying to learn better are Papalini Lahi Lahi, Me and Julio Down By the Schoolyard, and the theme to Hawaii 5-0.

A friend taught me "Beginning to See the Light" by Duke Ellington(?), and it is fairly easy. It has to be for me to learn it.
