The above bit is played very quickly and I'm wondering a couple of things:

1) In your opinion, would it be easier to barre the 12th fret? Or just keep my index finger moving?

2) There are obviously a lot of hammer-ons/pull-offs; I'm only picking the first note for each part (15p12h15 for example, I'd pick 15 then play the remaining notes with HO/POs), right?
This is probably a dumb question, but every time I see someone play this the notes all ring so loud and clear it's as if they're not even hammering on/pulling off. Of course, maybe this is because they're doing it much quicker than I am capable of.

I would barre the 12th. as for the volume issue, they might be using a compressor.
#3
Dont barre! watch any good player do a fast passage that you think you can barre. It does not help because it makes your other fingers harder to move quickly. It is not proper technique

1 - I would feel awkward barring that whole figure. I'd keep the index finger moving (that's just me)
2 - that's usually how you want hammers and pulls to sound. loud and clear. Strong technique in this area gives you that seemless effect. (Trill exercises will help a lot)

The speed shouldn't matter, your legato should be strong and clear at any tempo.

Slow down a whole lot and take a look at your technique, I suspect that's the real problem here.
