Watch the The Pinky online guitar lesson by Muriel Anderson from 1-2-3 Fingerstyle Guitar

In this simple excerpt from "Freight Train" that I'm playing, you can see how the little finger is useful in catching a lot of the melody notes. My DVD "Building Guitar Arrangements from the Ground Up" teaches this tune and gets into more detail on keeping the alternating bass going and adding melody notes.

Here I'll give three changeable licks that sound nice and help to get used to moving the pinky around.
