I've always wanted to play Angeles, but I could never get how it was done. I've looked at Youtube videos, but none never really explained the picking technique. From what I gathered, Elliott uses a kind of unique type of picking/strumming where he combines travis style picking with strumming. Anyone have any suggestions on how I should start out playing this?

I'm not much of a fingerpicker, but the way I approach travis picking is to learn the top part and the bass line separately and, after I can play both automatically, I put the parts together.
