Palm muting, chord transitions/walks Dave Stamey style

Devin,

 If you have ever watched Dave Stamey (one of my favorite cowboy singers/pickers), his picking pattern seems pretty simple but sounds great with palm muting and a a few simple runs/transitions between chords. He often plays and talks at the same time prior to leading into the song. I am unable to figure out his chord changes/transitions. A good example is his song "Spin That Pony". Sorry I am not able to attach a link. I would be grateful for a lesson on his walks/transitions and simple strumming with palm muting. 

Thank you greatly,

Ron Nelson

Ron, you might want to check out Devin's lesson on "Waiting for a train" by Jimmie  Rodgers. He uses some similar muting and walk ups.

I’ve had more trouble with hammer ons and chord embellishments than palm muting. I have weak fingers. I’m working on the pinky and ring finger excerises to get better control. My hands are small, you’d think I’d be able to hit the correct strings and not hit the adjoining strings better
