    Your guess is as good as mine, but what i would think is you take 3 fingers and pluck them all at the same time, or strum through them really quick. but i really don't know if that is how you play it.
     
  3. i would guess the notes would be played at the same time
    ie. grab all three strings and yank assuming 5 string they would be E-A-D

    Use either thumb, index and middle or index, middle and ring fingers to sound the E, A and D strings simultaneously, the thumb to sound the B, and the thumb or index finger to sound the E.
