                Capo on 2nd fret (Key: D major)

There's not a lot of structure to the picking on this one.
The important thing is to keep a steady beat with the bass notes while 
filling in with the fingers and not worrying too much about hitting just
one string. He seems to use the fingers like an upstroke pick.

Below is a standardised version of the basic patterns for each chord:
G7:  320001
C/g: 332010
F:   133211
E:   022100
Am:  x02210
