I have been working on this song for a while, but cant seem to get it clean because of how i finger it. If anybody knows this part of the song, can they please show how they finger it, to get it cleanly? this would be much appreciated. its the only part of the song i cant get right and i really want to finish it.

this is how i finger it:


    p i m    r i m   r  p i  m   m  p  i  i  r  m  
e|----------11-9----13-14-9-----16-18-14-------------------------
A|-14-9-----------------------------------14---------------------
D|------11-------11---------11---------------16-15---------------
G|---------------------------------------------------------------
B|---------------------------------------------------------------
E|---------------------------------------------------------------

    i  i   m  i   i    m  p  i   m  p  m  i  i  r  p  i  p
e|------------------------------------------------16----13-------
A|------------13------14-16-----14-16^14^13----16----13----------
D|-13-----15------13------------------------13-------------------
G|----13--------------------13-----------------------------------
B|---------------------------------------------------------------
E|---------------------------------------------------------------

im not gonna bother writing out the next 5 bars because they are the same and i know how to finger the last part of the 4th bar correctly.
the last part i need to know is:

    i  r  i  m  i  r   m  r  i  m  m  i  m  r i  m  r
e|-----19-17---------------------------------16-17---------------
A|-17----------17-19--------16-17-17-16-17-19------19(21)--------
D|----------16-------16------------------------------------------
G|-----------------------19--------------------------------------
B|---------------------------------------------------------------
E|---------------------------------------------------------------



wow that took forever to write out.
anyway, if anybody can show me an easier fingering, or give me tips on cleaning it up if they cant help me with the fingering, that would be much appreciated.
Thanks

i learned the beginning of metropolis..didnt bother learning the rest because the verse is boring, but i might do it anyway.

i love the beginning to Under a Glass Moon. the solo would take a lot of work, and im already working on The Glass Prison and perfecting Take the Time...it'd be a bit overwhelming atm. i'll get to it eventually, though.

im learning damage control atm, its a fantastic melody song for the first few segments.

then all the solos and stuff come in. TOOOO HARD. for the glass prison i guess you'd need a heap of stamina to hold it without mistakes.

oh man, to do just from the beginning to the chorus (i think?) is hard to keep up.
I was practicing the arpeggios yesterday, i can almost get them pretty clean at 150bpm..but the song is at 180 bpm. I was playing them for so long that i was dripping sweat and my knuckles were red. but if you play from the beginning, through the arpeggios, and then on, it feels like your arm will fall off.

the rhythm also is really annoying took me a little bit to get down properly. its better to learn that aswell to get alot more feel from it.
