Get Masons Hotlicks viddeo, that lick is all over it. He spends lots of time showing that "trick" as he calls it. It's one of his signature licks and I think he invented it.
It's not an easy lick, but not near as hard as it sounds if you are a finger picker.
It's likely harder if you are a hybrid or flat picker. He said he invented it on the Alan Jackson LP Chatahoochee
You guys pretty much got the 2nd lick close, but that first lick is something you likely will never get without being shown - it's really weird. Doug Seven does it on his site if you want to see it. Its a hard lick to do slow enough to show someone. it's both a claw type double stop right hand move where you are alternating "bouncing off" (Pulling off) with the ring finger and bouncing the index off the next lower string below hammering on and pulling off that too. There's an open string or two involved as well, which is why he does it that paerticular position in that key.

I take that back, that lick is hard as hell until you get it because it's like nothing you've ever really practiced - almost more of a trick, than a lick, it's kind of guitar gymnastics.
Mason can do it even faster than what this guy shows and all sus it so it sounds even more like a machine gun. Another thing about this lick is, at least for me, was pretty painful to build strength for. It made my arm hurt.
That's why i kept at it, figuring that it must be giving me something I'm not getting from my normal playing. Meaning that it's a lick that was transitional for developing strength, technique and progressing in general.
That's what was cool about it for me and why I say there really isn't anything quite like it, for my playing.
