cant figure out picking pattern

Recommended Posts

hi, I have been trying to figure out this picking pattern for a while now. I asked a few people but they have either said I don't know or try listening yourself and figure it out, but I cant. the song is Benjamin twine by George Ezra, here's a link on YouTube to a live video of him playing ->

Looks pretty straightforward to me. Fretting hand is playing basic first position chords (mostly A, D, E with the odd F#m). Picking pattern looks to be thumb picking root-fifth, index finger picking 1st then 2nd string, thumb-index to finish. Repeat. The actual strings the thumb is playing depend on which chord is being played.

Example: for the A chord the string sequence would be 5 4 1 2 4 2
