can you give me any more ideas on the picking pattern for the chorus? I'm having a hard time figuring it out by ear

Sure thing, as apposed to consecutively picking the notes like you would in the pre chorus, give yourself a simple up, down picking pattern. Sorry, that's the best I can explain it :L
