This is a 16 bar blues form with the traditional 1, 4, & 5 chords as well as a diminished 1 chord in the 2nd and 9th measures. The fingerpicking is Travis style, where the thumb plays a steady quarter note alternating bass pattern while the right-hand fingers play syncopated melodies and accompaniment on the treble strings. The intro plays once through the 16 bar form to set up the first verse. The Guitar Tricks country course can help you get up to speed on these techniques & there are some specialized bluegrass tutorials as well.
