I'm working through this song https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=yieeRs2w-MU

Slowly, but it's fun... Is the drone coming from a low a string? I can't figure out if he is using linear or re entrant.

Also it looks like he is strumming, but based on what I am working on I am picking specific strings. Is he muting the other strings and strumming them or am I missing something?

Tabs are here: https://blenistour.files.wordpress.com/2014/10/transcribed_jameshill_smash_v2.pdf
(Sadly no tab for the reel, can't find any)
Yes reentrant. I said in another post I'll complete my tab with St-Anne's reel but I've been busy and the second part is way harder than the first. I'll work on it later this year. When.

You guessed correctly he is muting some of the strings. This happens usually for the first string that's easy to mute with the left hand while holding notes on the 2nd/3rd string.

He is both picking and strumming. Look for the thread I started on cherry picking.
