So for the past month or so, I've been debating how to play notes like this:

e|----------------------------|
B|----------------------------|
G|----------------------------|
D|77777777777-99999-|
A|77777777777-99999-|
D|77777777777-99999-|

Now, the ways I have been debating between were:

1.) Take one finger, and lay it across that fret.
2.)Take three fingers, place one on each fret of the correct string, and leave the 1st-3rd string open.

Now, the reason I have been debating this is because the 1st makes it so I can hear the note better, while the second has the sound of the open strings. Do you know what I mean? lol

If you're having trouble muting the other three strings, you can fret the three strings with your middle, ring, and pinky fingers, then lay your index finger across all the strings, muting the open ones.

Just a thought.

Drop D, right? It's meant to be played with one finger, to make it easier to play.

So one finger it is.

You need to have a bad ass picking had to pick at that speed with all downstrokes...at least that's what I think while looking at that tab.

you dont need just downstrokes, stroke down, stop where the other 3 strings are and go back up, not that hard

any drop tunings (D or C) are designed to use one finger for the chord, makes for easier and faster transitions

...which will produce a completely different sound and feel than if this was played all downstrokes. I might be going out on a limb here, but given the Drop D tuning I'm going to bet that this was intended to be played aggressively with all downstrokes.
