Can one of you tabbers make some sense of this?

This German kid is knocking everyone's socks off all over the world with his version of Crossroads Blues.

The problem is, he does a TERRIBLE job of trying to explain HOW!

People are begging him for TAB and all he can do is show how he does it in slomo and either it doesnt match or I cant tell which fingers are fretting and which ones are just hanging there in the way!

He also does a 6th string hammer on in the slomo which he clearly doesnt do in the first video.

Can someone make some sense out of this?

The only bit I failed to get was how he gets a sort of jingle jangling sound while he's strumming with a pick at the 5th and 7th frets. I know he's hammering two fingers on the second and fourth stings which is pretty straight forward but I think he's also dropping the slide on the first string occasionally.

He's using his thumb in the performance version.

As for 5th/7th fret jangling, what do you mean? the 6+4 hammer-on on the IV chord? Nothing really jumps out at me as unusual there.

Guess it's just that I can't make my strumming sound like his. Mind you I'm using fingers not a pick!
