Hi. How do I get better at switching chords?

I'm playing a song where I switch from:

e|---------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----12----------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----10----------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------|

to

e|---------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------14-------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------16-------------------------------------------------------|
D|-------12-------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------14-------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------|

while strumming 16ths. It's quite awkward, but I'm getting better. Any other tips?

You gotta practice it really slowly and let your hands get used to the change, and gradually speed up until you can do it fast enough.

From that to that in between 16ths?
Well first I'd question the tab (if you're using one) because that's kind of weird coming from a power chord
That's hard to do that fast and there's not many other options for a comfortable switch
Practice like said..good luck

WTF.... That's a ridiculous chord.
Find the root notes and simplify.

I would barr the 12th fret on the second chord so your hand doesn't change shape much.

But I agree that isn't a stupid chord.
