Transcribing "Halley's Comet, 1986" by Darren Hanlon

Hi all!

I'm in the process of transcribing "Halley's Comet, 1986" by Darren Hanlon. I've got the chords sorted out for most of it, but the finger picking is doing my head in.

If you don't know the song, the best I can give is this link to him playing it live on YouTube:

I have a digital copy of it from my CD, but assume it's not OK to share, even for these types of purposes? What about if I snipped it and provided a link to some of it?

Capo 2nd fret.
G D/F# C G x 2
Em G Em G
C walk down to A C G C G

Sounds like an alternating bass line, but the rest has me stumped. Any help with the picking would be greatly appreciated.

Hey mate,

Just randomly came about this, but if you haven't already figured out the picking I'm pretty sure it's the standard:


That Bob Dylan "One too many mornings" feel.

Don't forget the F# on the low E when playing the D chord though!
