    The part transcribed comes at 2:15 in this video. Here's the tabs, and in red are the problem areas: (and dots represent 32nd notes)

    Code:
    ---11----11----11/12-11----------[color=red]11[/color]----[color=red]11[/color]-----------------------9-12---11-10-9----------[color=red]10.10[/color]-9----------[color=red]9[/color]----7/6-------
    14----14----14----------14-12-[color=red]11[/color]----[color=red]12[/color]----14-12-11---9.10.11.11----------------12-11-[color=red]10[/color]---------12-11-[color=red]10[/color]---[color=red]10[/color]-----9-8-7-

    I can't find a way to fret those without stumbling around. I've tried to analyze the video but it's surprisingly unhelpful, I can't see how he does it so smoothly. I HATE barre-ing, I don't think it's even possible to do fluently with our large string gauge.


    (bonus points if someone can tell me what mode this is in)
