Learning Fingerpicking Licks

I'm a competent enough electric player when it comes to playing with a pick, but when you throw bass notes and chords into the equation and remove the pick I end up having trouble with learning songs. It's not so much that I'm trying to play songs beyond my skill, it's just that I have a very difficult time with how to position my fingers on the fretboard and whatnot.

Can anybody offer me some advice on how they go about figuring how their left hand should be positioned through long songs like this .

It's not necessarily that I can't do it, more that it takes me more time than I feel it should to nail it down. I usually just kind of try and find the chord shape and then go from there, but a lot of times the way my hand ends up is just sort of iffy.
