First, when sweeping an A-minor shape, should i bar the d and g strings with my ring finger, or use seperate fingers? practicing it slowly i can play both ways but I want to know which way is better for when I start playing it faster

Second, how do you guys play a D-minor shape arpeggio in triplet-sixteenths(i forget what they're actually called)? so far i've just been doubling up on A and high E strings to compensate for not having a number of notes divisible by three.

thanks

For the first question yes, you should bar them with your ring finger
And to the second, use a 16h17 to begin with!

A slightly better way to play the D shape in 16th triplets would be to play a fourth on the top string on the upward sweep only (top E, 15th fret), and then play the bottom d not again before you start the next sweep or whatever else you're doing.

So you get:


e|------------13-15-17-13-----------------
b|---------15-------------15----------------
g|------14-------------------14-------------
d|---15-------------------------15-----------
a|17-------------------------------17-------
e|-------------------------------------------


That way you're not adding in a 7th that could maybe lead to some wierd hamronic trouble in the wrong place, especially as 16 would be a major 7th in a minor shape, that would give it a seriously harmonic minor sound.
